The Company:

Our client is a leading international provider of offshore contract drilling services for energy companies, owning and operating among the world's most versatile fleets focusing particularly on deep-water and harsh-environment drilling. They use a fleet of 71 mobile offshore drilling units, including the world’s largest fleet of high-specification rigs consisting of ultra-deep-water, deep-water and premium jack-up rigs. 

Problem Identified:

The company had grown fast through acquisition and was now the largest in its field. But with that came some arrogance and an attitude of ‘working to the letter of the contract’ – the customer relationships were suffering along with the results. Customers didn’t like being treated this way, and if they had an alternative, they would have chosen another supplier.

Client Requirement:

The SVP of the marketing department identified that the culture had to change across the organisation and to put the customers at the heart of their business. This required a shift in attitude from all within the organisation that had become arrogant and complacent due to their position of No.1 in the market. 


1. Change of mindset

To make the organisation consciously aware of how they treated customers and choose to change this. 

2. Customer centricity

Choose to put the customer at the heart of the business and listen to them. 

3. Eliminate complacency 

Listening to their customers and including them in the process shows that they care and do not take them for granted. 


The Challenge

With many global acquisitions, a multitude of cultures, and a workforce that didn’t know any better, it could be a challenge to get them all to understand their impact and the potential consequence of treating a customer this way. The attitude of ‘we are No.1’, and 'you have no choice but to choose us' had to flip to, ‘we are No.1 because we deliver you a fantastic customer experience, and because of this, you choose us.'

The Solution:

The solution was to invite key customers to participate and be a vital part of the event, providing live feedback during an evening session on the strengths and weaknesses of the business services, solutions, attitudes and behaviours of the people working on their account. This had a powerful impact on the business. The Customer Focus Programme was focused on creating a new culture where the customer experience was paramount and high levels of engagement, personal responsibility, and ownership were the norms.
