Introduction to CX online course
There are a lot of professional CX folks out there working to deliver insights that their Organizations can use to improve Stakeholder value – across Customers, Employees & the Organization.
But the CX Team represents only a few folks across Organizations with dozens, hundreds and even thousands of Employees.
And it takes everyone in the company to make great CX outcomes happen.
So we created this special Introduction to CX online course to help everyone contribute to great CX outcomes.
Drawn from our international CX Management / CCXP Exam Preparation Workshop, our Introduction to CX isn’t only content rich – it’s fun. We cover what CX is, what it looks like and why it matters.
Your Participants will go back to work with depth & breadth in CX– which helps turn the conversations in your Organization to ‘how can I help you get there’. Not just ‘oh no, another transformation.’
Let us help you inspire the people around you – in Customer Service, Marketing, Finance, IT, Engineering, Procurement, Legal and more – to care about your CX ambitions.
Who should do this course?
In short, the Introduction to CX online course is designed for anyone who wants to learn more about CX.
We’ve been teaching CX courses since 2001 and whilst many of our Participants seek to become CX Leaders and Consultants, it’s also becoming clear that there are others who want to increase their awareness and understanding of CX practices and principles without striving to be a CX practitioner.
The Introduction to CX online course is delivered over two consecutive days (four hours each day) to fast-track CX Learnings with typical attendees for this course including:
- Senior Executives and Managers who want to understand the various components of CX and how and why it’s critical to business success.
- Contact Centre and Customer Service professionals who want to broaden their understanding of Customer Experience (CX) and improve their career opportunities.
- CX Leaders & CCXPs who want colleagues & employees in their organisation to better understand CX in a practical, motivating & engaging way.
- Sales and Marketing professionals who want to broaden their understanding of Customer Experience and why it matters.
If you are looking to become a CX practitioner or consultant, want a deeper level of CX understanding and/or prepare for the CCXP exam we recommend the more advanced Customer Experience Fundamentals Course (which is a 16-hour course) >

Introduction to CX Course Modules
The Introduction to CX online course is broadly split into four modules delivered over the 2 x 4 hour online sessions.
Module 1. Understanding Customer Experience
Customer Experience isn’t Customer Service on steroids. And it’s not about buying the latest technology or offering another channel.
It’s about understanding the Customer’s perception of your organisation and then proactively doing something about it.
The Building Blocks for CX
- Defining Customer Experience
- Looking at CX ‘from space’
- How to use the Customer Lifecycle & Stages
- The role & value of Journeys
- The role & value of Touchpoints
- The role of prioritization in CX
- Drivers of Customer Expectations
- Shaping Customer Expectations
- Customer Expectations & Journeys
- Physical & emotional Customer expectations
- The CX Pyramid and how to use it
- The Jobs to Be Done paradigm
Module 2. What kind of Experience will we deliver?
There isn’t just ‘one’ kind of experience. Crafting & communicating the CX Vision makes sure that everyone in the Organization knows what kind of experience we will deliver.
And we have to consider both who we are – and what Customers want – to put together that great CX Vision we can all rally around.
The CX Vision
- The 4 elements of CX Strategy
- Defining the CX Vision
- The CX Vision and Values
- Inputs to the CX Vision – Who we are
- Inputs to the CX Vision – Voice of Customer
- The role of Voice of Customer
- Setting Employee Standards with a CX lens
Module 3. Customer Service & Culture
There continues to be confusion between ‘what is CX’ and ‘what is Customer Service’. The answer to this question changes the entire way an Organization looks at CX – and Customer Service – and leverages on both.
And Culture is what unites everyone – but what is it and how do we get there? In this section, we figure that out.
- The difference between Customer Experience & Customer Service
- What CX professionals can learn from Customer Service professionals
- Defining Customer Service for everyone
- Defining Culture
- The role of cultural beliefs
- The role of Values in Culture
- The role of Hiring in Culture
- The role of Socialization in Culture
- Rituals, Storytelling & Training
- Formal & Informal Rewards
Module 4. CX as a Business Discipline
CX is about a lot more than just ‘being nice’ to Customers. It’s a formal business discipline with specific & specialised know-how required.
The Organisational competencies for CX have been well established and are important to understand.
The Business Background for CX
- The historical & market drivers for CX

The 6 CX competencies and what you need to know about each one
- Customer Experience Strategy
- Voice of Customer, Customer Insight & Understanding
- Experience Design, Innovation & Improvement
