Customer Empathy Through Journey Mapping

Understanding the customers’ holistic experience with CMS can help you identify both customer pain points and opportunities for improving the customer experience. Journey maps, a commonly used Human-Centered Design (HCD) tool, create empathy by depicting the customers’ perspective as they interact with different touchpoints throughout their experience with CMS.  

During this online, four-hour training, attendees will learn how journey maps can be a useful human-centered design tool. They will finish the course with the skills to create and use a journey map to communicate insights, engage cross-department team members, and provoke change through the findings in this tool.
