We are at the start of a revolution in customer experience innovation. This revolution is being led by the concept of "trade-off" which is increasingly getting more attention. Thanks to Kevin Maney's new book, "Trade-Off: Why Some Things Catch On and Others Don't."

This presentation contains the background as well as a tool for mapping customer trade-offs as well as improving and innovating on customer experiences. The presentation includes ideas from Kevin Maney's "Trade-Off" book. This presentation also contains archetypal trade-off maps for examples in the Fidelity Belly as well as Hit Zone for products and services. Starbucks is featured as an example of a business that is currently in the Fidelity Belly.
