Of only 372 people in the world who are Certified Customer Experience Professionals (designated by the Customer Experience Professionals Association), we have four of them right here at E Source headquarters, answering your questions, writing about the topic, and giving presentations at events all over. One of them is Eryc Eyl, creator of the E Source CX Maturity Matrix and the 6 E’s framework for employee engagement. He enlightened last year’s Forum attendees with a session on creating a change-management framework. At this year’s Customer Experience Executive Council, he showed utility staff how to create a CX maturity matrix. Check out our website to see all the E Source reports, blog posts, and E News articles Eryc has written on organizational effectiveness, change management, employee engagement, and culture.
