This guidance note is an aid to the development and revision of all customer-facing standards [sometimes known as Customer Service Delivery Standards], irrespective of Directorate ‘ownership', proposed or extant. Most customer-facing requirements are in standards owned by Marketing & Planning, but some are in joint standards, while some may be owned by others. Customer-facing standards are developed around these organising themes ["customer service delivery areas"] -

• Access and Interchange

• Ambience

• Amenities and facilities

• Customer relations

• Customer information

• Security

• Staff

• Ticketing

• Train service

The note provides general guidance about ensuring that a customer-facing standard is in fact customer-focused, with attention drawn to some ‘tools' available to assist in a standard's development, including

• Market Research – (Customer Insight)

• Benchmarking

• Business Case Development Manual

• the Brand model.
