Course Description

The only value a company will ever create for its shareholders and owners is the value that comes from its customers – current ones and new ones acquired in the future. To remain competitive, companies must determine how to retain customers longer, grow them into bigger customers, make them more profitable, serve them more efficiently, and target acquiring more profitable customers.

In this course, Gary Cokins, internationally recognized expert and CEO of Analytics-Based Performance Management, will walkthrough how to shift the mindset from growing sales to growing profitable sales and how to view customers as investments.
