The opening chapter takes the reader through three aspects of customer experience management (CEM) – the what of customer experience (CX), the why of CX and the how of CEM. The authors have collected, synthesised and presented information from research as well as practice in this chapter. It helps the readers build a perspective on CX, sieving through various notions, philosophies and terms that have come to mean CX. The chapter also establishes the need for understanding CEM and executing it using the framework presented in the ‘how’ section of the chapter. The chapter concludes with a short overview of each of the following chapters.
