The Outside In Award for Measurement recognizes an organization that excels at measuring customer experience quality enterprise-wide on an ongoing basis and using the data to drive continuous improvement. Winners of the inaugural Outside In Awards were chosen based on five criteria: clarity of approach, business value to the organization, positive impact on customer experience, innovation, and potential for other companies to replicate the practice.

“The Outside In Awards recognize organizations that don’t just talk about customer experience, but take a disciplined approach to improving it,” said Harley Manning, co-author of Outside In and vice president and research director in the customer experience practice at Forrester. “Their efforts stand out from among those of their peers by being systematic, and by demonstrating results for both their business and their customers. Our research shows that when organizations do take a disciplined approach, as our winners have, they can expect business benefits ranging from more revenue from increasingly loyal customers, to more and better word of mouth from happier customers.”
