To succeed in the rapidly evolving experience economy executives must think differently about how they create economic value for their customers.
Five value-creating opportunities are likely to drive further progress in the dynamic experience economy: customizing goods; enhancing services; charging for experiences; fusing digital technology with reality; and transformative experiences, a promising frontier.
