Experience Management (XM) embraces aspects of daily business activities that include marketing, sales and service where customers tend to be directly and regularly engaged. This subject will investigate and explore different aspects of the way that a firm can practice XM with content potentially developed and drawn from topics that deal with marketing and planning, campaign management, e-marketing, lead management, analytics, customer segmentation, service order support and customer processing. Both theoretical and practice-based content will be critiqued in the subject with student learning being based on using a combination of computer-based exercises, case studies and industry speakers.
