12:45 PM Workshop 13: Applying Low-Effort Skills in a High-Effort World

When something goes wrong, and things go wrong all the time, there is one dominant factor in a customer’s experience that will ultimately decide their future loyalty, and that is how easy we make it to get their problem solved.
