When we think who our customers are, we tend to only think about who we are servicing externally. We really need to recognize all our customers and all of their needs.
Even if your organization is not directly servicing customers it is probable you have “customers” at your organization, these customers are more commonly known as co-workers! A customer is anyone who uses the service or product that you provide or make.
