Digital Acceleration Trends of 2022 (Here’s what we are predicting)
​​Total Experience
Total experience hinges on four disciplines: customer experience, user experience, employee experience and multi-experience to help create an experiential understanding for consumers and employees. The core purpose is to interlink, interconnect and enable each of these for a comprehensive experience for all involved.
​​How to get started
Orient and motivate teams that are pursuing experience enhancement initiatives to collaborate with and learn from others. Ensure that the leaders of experience related initiatives are equally responsible for resolving the needs of customers and employees.
