Reinventing a public institution with experience management
Public libraries have been a cornerstone of many local communities for more than a century. But the growth of online access to information has diminished their initial value proposition of lending books. Recognizing this shift, the Columbus Metropolitan Library (CML) reimagined the role of a public library in today’s society and reinvented the entire library system.
Hear from Alison Circle, Chief Customer Experience Officer at CML, about how they're re-thinking the system to deliver the experiences people want next. She'll be joined for a live Q&A with Bruce Temkin, Head of Qualtrics XM Institute to discuss CML's approach, how they're curating a customer-first culture, and designing environments optimized for new goals.
What you'll learn:
- How to create a CX philosophy and culture that drives action
- What it takes to build and manage a multi-faceted CX program
- The impact of making every customer feel valued
