Introduction

The previous module, Business Models, described the differences between the three business models and showed how a customer-centric business model offers a solution for banks to build deeper, more relevant relationships with their customers to create mutual value for their customers and stakeholders. Strategically, it also builds a defence against changing customer behaviour and competition that keeps them relevant.

This Module will develop your understanding of how a bank’s customer-centric business model is put into practice to deliver the bank’s strategy.

In Customer Management Level I, we will lay the foundations by discussing what customer management is and the capabilities that a bank needs to put in place. In Customer Management Level II, we will discuss how the bank operates to deliver a personalised customer experience.
