60 Min Workshop: Experience Management: How To Build An XLA
October 31 | 11:20 – 12:20
In this session, I will share Unisys’s approach to experience management and let attendees in on how we use experience data to impact business initiatives and drive the value.
Unisys’s Experience Management Office (XMO) came out of a need for the whole IT services ecosystem to work together holistically, applying analytical reasoning to emotional insights to extract actionable facts from feelings. I will break down the structure and mandate of the XMO, explain how they investigate and analyse end-to-end service, processes, and request lifecycles, and how the results of those inquiries are communicated to stakeholders for remediation.
I will also explain how the XMO develops and deploys experience level agreements (XLAs) that track and target hard and soft data on customer sentiment, drive ongoing improvement, and boost overall satisfaction. Finally, and this is where the fun begins, there will be an opportunity for the audience to get involved and gain a practical experience of building an XLA together relevant to their environment. This session is for everyone, regardless of whether you are starting your XLA journey or whether you’re a seasoned XLA practitioner.
