While Big Data has been much hyped as a new way to help organizations meet their customer needs and desires; another equally important advance has been the application of behavioural science – new knowledge from psychology, behavioural economics, neuroscience, and sociology – for the understanding of how customers think and act.

Behavioural science is a discipline, which is deeply rooted in a collaborative way of thinking and finding solutions. Many international organizations have started adding the field of behavioural science in their existing operations driven by necessity. It is imperative for the PSEs also to integrate these ideas in to their decision-making process to effectively compete in this global environment.
