              British Imperialism and the Making of Colonial Currency Systems (Trade Paperback / Paperback, Softcover reprint of the original 1st ed. 2016)

              Covering the colonial Empire (including West Indies, India, Singapore, West Africa and East Africa), this book is a detailed revisionist history of the British imperial manipulations of colonial currency systems to facilitate the rise of sterling to world supremacy via the gold s...tandard, and to slow its eventual decline after World War I. Official internal correspondence is used to show that Britain typically acted against the advice of colonial commercial interests, colonial governments, and even officials in the Colonial Office, in order to replace international currencies (including gold and sterling itself), with localised silver currencies. The local currencies were backed by gold and sterling reserves in London, under the total control of the British Treasury and the Bank of England. In the process liquidity was provided to the London money market, and cheap finance to the British Government. This book provides a new perspective on theories of imperialism, colonial money and colonial underdevelopment, with possible geostrategic historical lessons for the US dollar and emerging global currencies such as Chinese renminbi and the Euro.

              Customer Experience Management Rebooted: Are you an Experience brand or an Efficiency brand? (Trade Paperback / Paperback, Softcover reprint of the original 1st ed. 2017)

              Walden shows why most customer experience management fails to improve the customer's real experience and how to concentrate on the subjective emotional perceptions that drive the customer's actual experience rather than the quantitative service efficiency metrics gathered by most... CX tools. Customer experience management is not about managing every objective experience your customers have with you. It's about understanding, measuring and creating experiences that customers value. So while service and efficiency are wonderful things, they represent business as usual ; the ticket to the game, the platform from which experiences are created not the experience itself! The message of this book is that businesses are at risk! Their uber focus on efficiency is leading them to miss the chance to connect more closely with their customer base and deliver on the creative potential of their brand. They ignore the fact that technology is an enabler of the experience it is not the experience. Customers are not data - they are people: living, breathing, contradictory, infuriating bundles of cognitive and emotionally-driven responses to stimuli. Experience deals with how customers think, feel and behave - the things that motivate them to act which go beyond frequently forgettable efficiency. This means differentiating by providing new and better experiences based on a deeper understanding of what motivates customers to buy. To do that we must leave the objective, quantitative, world of quality management and enter the subjective, qualitative, world of customer's psychology. Walden reboots our understanding of customer experience, showing us what it means, how to measure it, what we need to do to manage it and how we can gain financially from it. Understand, measure, create and do - but first of all, understand.
