Public services need to adapt to the needs of their customers, the citizens. Often new e-services are technology-initiated, but the Smart Cities approach starts with the user. This guide provides an introduction to the customer journey mapping (CJM) process, and explains how CJM fits into both customer insight and business process improvement approaches. It provides practical guidelines on how to make the most of CJM.

Do you understand your customers? Your citizens? The communities you’re trying to help? Customer Insight - working to use data and evidence to better understand citizens and communities - is a key tool for municipalities to use if they want to deliver better, more targeted and more effective services to communities and citizens.
Customer insight needs to be on the agenda of local government. This is what speakers and attendees of the Customer Insight Conference said in Cambridge past week. About 100 local government officials attended the conference in the Moller Centre in Cambridge. The conference was organised by Smart Cities and Norfolk County Council.
