Three reasons why organisations often struggle to effectively work with their journey maps - Richard McMurray (Service Design Specialist at BT Group)

In this talk, I'm going to explore three key reasons why organisations often struggle to effectively work with their journey maps.

We'll delve into three points I believe organisations struggle with:
1. Misconceptions around journeys
2. Focus too much on individual touch points and that produces siloed approaches
3. Who owns the journeys and flows?

By the end of our time together, you'll gain insights and believe that journey management can help you in your CX & UX efforts.

19:30 - 19:45
