As the days of selling purely on product, features, and price fade away, the need for stellar experience has grown more important, giving the Chief Customer Officer (CCO) a more dynamic set of responsibilities. The CCO role has grown exponentially over the last five years with many stepping into it without a clear view to what it takes to be successful. We’re here to help.

Only 55% “strongly agree” that they are responsible for the “end-to-end” customer journey


Only 20% of CCO's receive invitations to attend or speak at board meetings “very frequently.”


At least 50% said that cultural resistance is one of the greatest challenges they face

So what does it take to succeed? Deloitte completed its Global CCO Study to answer that question. We structured our study around Deloitte’s Five Tenets of the Human Experience so we could understand not only how CCOs are thinking holistically about the customer experience, but also how they’re approaching the workforce and partner experience.  CCOs who embrace the capabilities needed to Elevate the Human Experience were nearly twice as likely as their peers in their industries to have significantly higher net margin and revenue growth rates. 

We discovered five insights core to the success of high performing CCOs and are reviewing each in our CCO article series.

Coming soon:

Article Two: CCOs need to disrupt traditional thinking and act with more agility.
Article Three: Strategies need to be built around and with your customers.
Article Four: Leading CCOs find success through artful collaboration.
Article Five: The case for change is in the metrics.
Article Six: CCOs need a seat at the leadership table.
