"Finding a book that’s filled with practical tips and stories from other customer experience leaders serves to reassure us that every organization’s journey is unique and that we need to adapt. I wish I’d had this book 10 years ago."

Hazel Hughes, VP International Customer Experience, Weight Watchers

"Delivering better services for customers can often feel like a daily battle within big organizations – but it’s a battle worth having. This book provides you with all the tips, tools and techniques you need to instigate culture change outside of the design team."

Kate Kapp, Head of Service Design, Tesco PLC

"The design of the services we interact with each day is critical in the ever more competitive world of brands vying for our loyalty. And if those services stretch across a multitude of channels, the complexity of delivering customer delight consistently can become bewildering. Enter the experts!

Engine Service Design has consistently proven the effectiveness of their solutions to complex problems, not only delivering great customer service but in adding tangible value to the brands they work with. Being able to get the inside line on their know-how is invaluable – and Customer-Driven Transformation the foundation stone to building great brand experiences."

Deborah Dawton, CEO, Design Business Association, UK

"Being a disruptor or coping with disruption are the challenges all business leaders face. In Customer-Driven Transformation, the authors put a spotlight on the excuses that stop people building their path to success. This is a must-read for all contemporary managers."
