In the customer experience space, we more often than not tell stories from the B2C world and give examples of customers who have been 'Wowed' or 'Saved' or 'Delighted'. How do we translate these lessons to an environment where the customer isn't buying a $80 jacket but a multimillion-dollar contract? Can these lessons even be translated, or do we need a whole new paradigm shift on what B2B Customer Experience is? This book answers that question.
