Tuesday, February 28th Sessions:
Internal & External Customer Focus While internal or external customers may fulfill different roles, both are critical to the viability of an organization or business. External “customers” are necessary to the success of any business or organization, as they are why an organization exists – To provide goods and/or services to the customer. The survival of an organization is also often dependent upon the revenue stream provided through the patronage of the external customer. They are essential for initial and repeat business, as well as referrals. Thus, both good and bad experiences for a customer can have significant impacts on an organization. A simple definition of an internal customer is “anyone within your organization who is dependant on you to meet a goal or deadline”. They are comprised of those who work every day to make your operation a success. Internal customers include co-workers, departments within your organization, suppliers, supervisors, managers and subordinates. Foundations for internal customer focus include effective inter-departmental communication, and cooperative attitudes and behaviors. The premise is that because every person within your organization ultimately impacts external customers, the same best practices for excellent external customer focus generally applies to the internal customer.
