"Scoring Points: How Tesco Is Winning Customer Loyalty"

by Clive Humby

Highly recommend. Humbly was the lead consultant who helped Tesco (UK supermarket chain) reinvent itself through its Clubcard. Tesco now sells banking services, insurance products, utilities, vacations, cars etc. They have grown their share of customer spending in the UK to a phenomenal degree with their Clubcard being a driving force. Tesco now counts for a reported $1 in every $12 that is spent in retail in the UK, which is just an unbelievable figure.
