No matter if you’re completely new to journey maps or if you’re a veteran in journey mapping, using journey maps as a visual customer-centric management tool requires a specific set-up and governance structure. When implemented correctly, it can help you to keep an overview of ongoing and planned initiatives in your organization as well as a repository of past projects including previous journey maps and research data.

Journey Management enables you to:

  • Keep a hierarchy of maps that are always up-to-date
  • Build a repository of previous projects and research data
  • Coordinate all projects in your organization with impact on CX/EX
  • Find old projects and build new projects on existing data
  • Create a dashboard of CX/EX for management
  • Actively build bridges between organizational silos

"I would recommend Journey Map Operations to anyone who wants to build End-to-End visibility of Customer Experience, break silos and unite their organization around customers and users. Marc gives lots of practical recommendations as well as strong inspirations. Make sure you do ask questions as Q&A is something I have found particularly amazing in this very hands-on course."
