  2. 2. 2 Mohammed Akram Ayyubi What is churn? Three categories of churn: Account churn: Where we have lost the customer completely Product churn: Where the customer has lowered its product profile e.g. from 5 products to 3 products Decreased spend: Where the customer has not changed its product profile but its spending has reduced due to: a) Some circuits have ceased from its existing product profile b) Reduction in spending due to modification / other billing changes Churn is a loss of whole or part of services from a customer
  3. 3. 3 Mohammed Akram Ayyubi Churn - A complex problem Churn is a complex issue, both for the customer and us. It is a symptom of a larger underlying problem. For example, we don’t know: • how to optimally manage the complex and critical relationships with customers • who the customers are • what they want and need • what makes them stay and what makes them go
