The knowledge and the Journeys

In our post digital world, the power balance has shifted from organizations to individuals. This statement is true whether the individual is a customer, an employee or a citizen. Formerly, individuals were forced to follow rules, processes and customer paths imposed by organizations structured in silos. Today, the individual has regained power and is happy to find his own way about how he interacts with companies.

Every day he invents new use cases, expresses himself more freely, far away from established rules. He assembles the tools and processes that are offered to create his own experience and his own journey. As a customer, he imposes his opinions and values, ​​and obliges brands to adapt and renew themselves permanently: in their products, in their branding and in how they match the customers' journey.

We have entered the age of personalization, dialogue and client intimacy. To do this, companies must constantly refine their customer knowledge, and deduce more practical, relevant, attractive and seducing trajectories out of it.
