What is the omnipresent “Net Promoter Score?”


I was researching the concept, as it came up in a meeting.

In brief: as an operational feedback mechanism, measure ONLY enthusiastic customers and ONLY ask is they were satisfied and if they would recommend your services or product. ‘

“Enthusiastic” means the highest ranking on both.

No long customer satisfaction surveys that have no predictive value and cost a fortune to create, implement, and that your customers don’t complete.

Interesting. Powerful.
