With all of the change that’s happened in contact centers over the past 10 years, it may be daunting to think about the years ahead, but it’s a necessary and revealing exercise. Strategic, long-term planning enables organizations to prepare for and anticipate investments in technology, shifts in their workforce, and evolutions in their methods for delivering service. But how far out should a long-term plan go? And what should or shouldn’t be included in the process?

In this ICMI webinar, you’ll hear from contact center expert Justin Robbins on how long-term planning has changed in recent years, what’s the most effective data for future planning, and ways to leverage the changes in technology and customer expectations to your advantage.
