Use the Next-Best-Action Designer to build the structure of business issues and groups in your organization.

Pega Customer Decision Hub

Business issues are different areas of focus for your business. A business issue is the purpose behind the actions you offer to your customers. For example, actions which started with the purpose of retaining existing customers should be grouped under the business issue of Retention. Actions started with the purpose of acquiring new customers belong to the business issue of Acquisition.

Business groups organize customer actions into categories. For example, as part of the business issue of Acquisition, you can create groups for products like Credit Cards, Mortgages, or Personal Loans, with the intention of offering these to potential new customers.

Together, business issues and groups form the organizing structure for your customer interactions. Each action you prepare for your customers is associated with a business issue and a group.
