Based on more than a decade of firsthand experience and over 100,000 customer interviews, Customer CEO provides every size company with a roadmap of fresh ideas and easy to use tools, while exploring three-dozen companies that embrace the power of their customers. By reading this book, every leader can transform their business into a Customer CEO company.
