Sydney Signage Considers Customer Journeys

I’m having a great time in Australia, enjoying the country while (hopefully) sharing some strong CX skills and knowledge during events in Sydney and Melbourne. One of the things that I noticed in Sydney were the road signs. Here’s an example.

The signage answers the basic question (it’s Yurong Street), and additionally it answers other questions for people who may want to go to Woolloomoolloo, the airport or Bondi.

This is a great example of Customer Journey Thinking. Whoever put together these signs was thinking about what travelers are trying to accomplish, not just focusing on their immediate interaction of getting the name of a street.

Thanks to all of the wonderful people (and creatures) that we’ve had the opportunity to meet (and to introduce to the red iGuy from our logo)!
