Better Future Strategy

The world as we know it, is resetting its fundamentals. People are re-evaluating how they work, live, consume, interact, deal with values, identity, wellbeing. The different world events in 2020 have accelerated behavioral shifts to a new level.

Right now, a purpose driven transformation era is afoot - one that is pushing companies to reset their fundamentals in creating better futures. Not only a better future for their business, but also for the planet, people and society.

WHAT WE DO

Resetting your fundamentals to reignite growth for the better

The new way of integrated business thinking is fully based on trust and must respond to customers new, often unmet and frequently changed needs and enable them to achieve their desired outcomes. The Customer Experience (CX) philosophy has shifted to a new level of Life Experience (LX). Where we strive for a better life for all of us.

LX is very much a new category of business and leadership that savvy CEOs and their leadership teams will embrace as we move deeper into the coming decade.

We need to move the sometimes existing brand purpose on a more holistic level, to create a business purpose that ties back to not only marketing (and the CMO level), but every aspect of a company’s operations (boardroom).

The shift from customer experience to life experience is an urgent business imperative because of the new and pressing customer demands a the rising expectations towards brands and businesses to make a difference much accelerated by the pandemic.

Becoming a LX leader starts with becoming life obsessed.

WHAT WE OFFER

4 ways to build your better future strategy

Life obsession

Obsess about customer needs (individually and holistically)- and use that as your compass. At & Koo we can give a unique view of your customer and his/her life goals through a combination of creatively using sales data, behavioural data, unconscious data, and future trends.

Innovation culture and everyday habit

Experience innovation is not a tactic that shows up at a specific moment. And it’s not achieved by optimizing CX touch points. Experience innovation is about solving problems in fundamentally new ways. And installing a mindset of innovation throughout the whole organization.

Shared experience responsibility

LX is ultimately about fusing your front office, sales marketing, service, product functions and connecting it to the back office (eg HR, supply chain, …) etc with one brand purpose as the north star.

Sync the tech, data and human agendas

Becoming a business of life experience is not about investing more, it’s about investing differently. All necessary efficiency measures can be reinvested in new opportunities for performance and growth.
