This webinar will explore the Customer Journey Mapping (CJM) methodology developed by 17Triggers as it relates to developing and strengthening commercial relationships between Savings Groups and Financial Service Providers. Presentations will feature representatives from both 17Triggers and the SEEP Network's Peer Learning Group (PLG), a team of six practitioners currently engaged in a 7-month active learning period aimed at addressing collective challenges and questions relating to Commercial Relationships between Savings Groups and Financial Service Providers. Together, panelists will outline the CJM tool, how it has been applied globally by 17Triggers and how this approach has led to concrete changes in products and delivery channels for members of Savings Groups. PLG members will also share their recent experience learning about and utilizing the CJM methodology to advance SG programming within their respective institutions.
This webinar is organized by the SEEP Network as part of the The MasterCard Foundation Savings Learning Lab — implemented by Itad in collaboration with the SEEP Network.
