Work efficiently and create a personal experience at the same time is a challenge in education.
Let's face it, most of us haven’t grown more patient with inefficient processes over the last couple of years. This is a consequence of the even faster digital transformation during the period 2020-2022, in which the majority of people worked - and studied from home. This has a big impact on education and the customer experience.
Around the globe
In the period 2020-2022 we learned how to plan, schedule and work efficiently using digital technology. We also ordered more online and planned our activities with rapidly increased use of digital tools. In particular higher education always have taken pride in delivering quality programs on site. Covid and studying from home changed that. Most of the students studied from home for many months or even years in 2020 to 2022. This meant the competitive landscape changed for higher education institutes. Instead of competing with institutes in a direct region or country, the limitation of distance became obsolete for (business) students. They can follow comparable courses around the globe.
Not only the competition between universities and higher education institutes to get new students increased, also the expectations of students with regards to efficiency and the quality digital experiences increased due to the societal accelerated digital transformation.
Change of plans
So, increased competition and higher expectations with regards to efficiency and convenience called for a change of plans for educational institutes. It’s therefore no surprise that eight out of ten higher education institutions have put customer centricity at the heart of their strategic agenda, with the customer (or student) experience as their main focus. Research shows that 42% of higher education institutions see improving student experience as their top priority in today's competitive landscape.
