CDTB Colloquium, “A Prospect of Customer Experience Journey in the Digital Age”

CDTB Colloquium, “A Prospect of Customer Experience Journey in the Digital Age”   Korea University Business School (Dean=Johngseok, Bae) Center for Digital Transformation & Business (CDTB; Head=Dr. Byung Cho Kim) hosted the CDTB Colloquium on Thursday, April 28, 2022.   In this event, Director Hyunjung Lee of HSAd participated as a keynote speaker and gave a lecture on the topic, “A Prospect of Customer Experience Journey in the Digital Age.” The event, which began at 3:30 PM, consisted of a lecture (60 minutes) and a Q&A session (15 minutes).   Director Hyunjung Lee is in charge of the CXM (Customer Experience Management) Center, which is an organization that derives marketing solutions by analyzing customer experiences. Director Lee specializes in the “Customer Experience Journey,” and is actively working with various companies by suggesting optimal marketing methods using data analysis.   Director Lee started the lecture by saying, “Customers are willing to pay more for a better experience.” Then, she explained the difference between “customer satisfaction,” which measures the customer’s experience after purchasing a product, and “customer experience,” which requires a detailed understanding of the customer journey. Director Lee further emphasized, “Companies should change their perspective and think about ways to provide positive experiences to customers. Understanding customer experience not only requires an analysis of behavioral patterns but also requires an understanding of customer needs and psychology.”     Director Lee continued, “It is no longer possible to differentiate products only with design and functions – and that is where CXM becomes the key.” She mentioned three reasons why CXM is important: △Holistic View, △Fast Activation, and △Performance Driven. She added, “Changes in the online shopping environment have also played an important role. Companies should focus on developing mobile shopping environments, such as UI and payment services.”   Director Lee also explained “7 Keys to Understanding CXM,” which included △identification of customer emotions and behaviors, △creation of services that reflect customer emotions and behaviors, △contact points with customers, △sufficient information and high accessibility, △customer experience-based marketing, △personalization, and △brand positioning. She emphasized the importance of managing customer data in achieving CXM. Next, Director Lee explained real-life examples of how to derive marketing solutions using data. She concluded the lecture by saying, “In order to analyze customer experience well, it is important to have curiosity, manners, and analytical skills.”     In the following Q&A session, students asked many questions regarding topics such as data acquisition process, potential of domestic digital marketing, customer experience of financial services, and mobile phone business. After about 15 minutes of passionate Q&A, the Colloquium came to an end.   Meanwhile, KUBS has established CDTB in 2019 to act as a platform that connects education, research, and industry, while leading digital transformation in the field of education and research. CDTB has been hosting many special lectures since then.

Korea University Business School CDTB expands industry-academic cooperation

Korea University Business School CDTB expands industry-academic cooperation   Korea University Business School Center for Digital Transformation & Business (CDTB, Center Director = Professor Kim Byung Cho) is expanding industry-academic cooperation based on MSBA (MS in Business Analytics) capstone project. As one of the main roles of CDTB, the Capstone Project is an industry-academic cooperation project that uses real data provided by companies to solve corporate problems and explore models, and is an alternative to a master's thesis in Business Analytics (BA from below) major (Head professor=Baeho Kim). In 2022, a total of seven companies △ LG Household & Health Care, △ LG CNS, △ GIIR (participating customers: LG Display, E-duk I&C-Allerman), △ Korea Credit Information Services, and △ Hanmi Pharmaceutical (in order of Korean), have agreed to participate as Capstone Project cooperating companies, while agreement is under way for smooth mutual exchange. The fact that the MSBA Capstone project has expanded cooperation to seven companies in two years since it began as two companies in 2020 can be evaluated as proof that external interest and evaluation in DT education and research at KUBS have increased significantly. What is particularly notable this year is that more than half of its partners are LG affiliates. A total of four companies are LG affiliates, including LG Display Co., Ltd. in electronics, LG Household & Health Care Co., Ltd. in chemical, LG CNS Co., and GIIR Co., Ltd. in telecommunications and services. Especially at the Capstone Project Theme Seminar held on April 13th, 2nd class of BA graduates employed at LG CNS attended and promoted the company, and other partner companies have suggested the possibility of conducting industry-academic research projects after the Capstone project. This shows that the Capstone project is not a one-time cooperation, but a mutually beneficial cooperation project that can be expanded to further employment of talented students and industry-academic research projects. Moreover, in order to find advanced industry-academic cooperation plans, CDTB will invite officials from Capstone project partner companies as speakers to hold a colloquium. Byung Cho Kim, director of the center, said, "Starting with Lee Hyun-jung, head of CXM Center of HS Ad Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of GIIR, on April 28th, we are preparing a colloquium for LG CNS Co., Ltd. and LG Household & Health Co., Ltd. in June," adding, "We look forward to the participation of Korea University members interested in DT." Meanwhile, CDTB was established in December 2019 and is playing a large role in supporting the MSBA Capstone project as an industry-academic Open Connected Platform, operating a DAB competition (formerly DTB data utilization competition), and holding Colloquium and KUBS DT Day.

Startup mentors currently in business are invited to give lectures themselves in this program. Jaehyun Jeon and Hyunjae Yu, co-representatives of ‘Chunmyung & Company’, gave the lecture, broadcasted online due to COVID-19, on the topic of ‘3 things that are good to prepare for Startup.’ Co-representatives Jaehyun Jeon and Hyunjae Yu are currently running ‘Chunmyung,’ which provides intermediary service platform for fortune-telling. The lecture was given in a comfortable atmosphere, and rather than giving advice on how to make a startup successful, the topic focused on "This will inevitably ruin the startup!" Through the three main questions of "Are we making what customers like?" "Can your team members make the best of a bad bargain together with you?" and "Are we proving it, not claiming it?" they continued to share vivid experiences, including the hardships they suffered to get seed money from the preliminary start-up package after quitting work. After the lecture, there was a time to exchange questions from participants dreaming of actual startups, such as the initial process of verifying hypotheses and difficulties in customer sales. To the question "It is really difficult to find a team member, but is there a solution to this?", CEO Jeon advised, "If you are a student, it is better to experience various groups and organizations such as academic societies and studies." Finally, CEO Yoo advised, "Even if what you are doing now does not win awards at competitions, it is important to go beyond that idea and take on various challenges in a broader perspective." Meanwhile, "Chunmyung & Company Co., Ltd." is a graduate of the "2019 Fall CHOO CHOO Day" organized by a Startup Station in 2019, and moved into the Startup Station Institute of KUBS in the summer of 2019.
