In a highly competitive market, organizations are increasingly placing customers at the center of their corporate strategies. Very few, however, are actually achieving true customer centricity, beyond creating a customer care service. Having a customer-centric strategy means ensuring that the way products and services are developed and marketed is aligned with customers’ real needs.

Piller, Economist and Professor at RWTH Aachen University.
