How a deeper understanding of human behaviour can transform your business
Most complex business problems boil down to human behaviour. Ultimately, how people behave strongly influences how products, services and organizational processes are designed and how stakeholders embrace them. That’s where behavioural economics come into the picture.
As emerging threats and opportunities transform the business landscape, organizations that harness the power of data analytics to understand what drives customers and employees to think or act the way they do will prevail.
Through behavioural economics, we can see how we don’t always make decisions in a rational and calculated way. We often use thought processes that are intuitive and gut-driven rather than deliberative and planned.
You can’t force people to be more rational, but by recognizing the power of personalization and anticipating cognitive biases using behavioural science and data analytics, you can design targeted, cost-effective interventions that nudge people toward better decisions and behaviours. It’s about addressing the inefficiencies that stand between you and the best outcomes for your organization and stakeholders.
Gallup research shows that companies applying behavioural insights principles outperformed peers by 85% in sales growth and more than 25% in gross margin during a one-year period.
PwC’s behavioral insights practice looks at using the science and knowledge of human behaviour to decide how to solve problems in order to get the best outcome for customers, employees and citizens. In the digital era, many businesses are faced with disruption from new and emerging technologies. While this innovation is exciting and is changing how we work it’s only part of the equation.
Your people and processes are key to successful business transformation but are often overlooked. The value of truly understanding human behaviour across your organization is imperative to setting up your organization for success.
