About Customer Value Leadership Award
Ultimately, growth in any organization depends upon customers purchasing from your company, and then making the decision to return time and again. Everything is truly about the customer—and making those customers happy is the cornerstone of any long-term successful growth strategy. To achieve these dual goals (customer engagement and growth), an organization must be best-in-class in three key areas: (1) take into account what your competitors are, and are not, doing; (2) meet customer demand with a comprehensive, value-driven product or service portfolio; and (3) establish a brand that resonates deeply with customers and stands apart from other providers. To achieve best-practice levels in brand, demand, and positioning is a rare and significant accomplishment, and that is why Frost & Sullivan celebrates it with the Customer Value Leadership Award. Recipients of this award represent the top ten percent of their industry: the other ninety percent just can’t keep up.
