Why By the 5s?

An article from the Harvard Business Review presented research showing that satisfied customers (4 rating) are not necessarily loyal. The study found that on a scale of 1 to 5, a customer who marks a 4 is six times more likely to defect than a customer who marks a 5.

In other words, there is a six-fold increase in customer loyalty between 4s and 5s. At Disney, they are not measuring customer satisfaction; they are measuring customer loyalty. And when you think about it, customer loyalty, not mere satisfaction, is the only protection any organization has against serious competition in its future. It is the only perception an organization can take to the bank, so to speak. | Fred Lee, If Disney Ran Your Hospital.
