3 Key Areas to Focus When Building Your Customer Success Program #
One of the questions we get asked all the time is, “What are the key areas where we need to take action to drive the success of our customer success program?”
At Success Chain, we found there are three areas where organizations really need to focus their efforts to ensure the success of their customer success program.
How Will You Structure Your Customer Success Team? #
The first area is trying to figure out how do you actually structure and set up and operate your customer success team itself.
- What’s the org structure of our team.
- What are the roles and responsibilities?
- What are the skill sets that we need?
- What are the processes we should use?
- What are the tools that we need?
- What are the metrics we need to identify to make sure that we have a high impact team that’s operating well and delivering the impact that we need?
How Will You Engage Your Customers? #
The second area where many organizations need help is trying to understand what are the things that you need to do when engaging with your customers to get them, to take actions so they achieve a level of success that they wouldn’t achieve on their own and they achieve it faster than they thought possible.
And that’s actually an area where many organizations, especially junior CS staff, struggle, is how do you proactively guide your customer, challenge them and get them to accelerate their own success.
How Will You Drive Internal Alignment? #
And the third area is determining how you will drive internal alignment across your own organization, between your customer success team and the other departments such as sales, marketing, product support.
- Setting up a customer success team and program changes, roles and responsibilities.
- It changes who does what and how to engage with customers.
- It changes the information that everyone needs to do their job well and effectively.
All of it has to come together, so that each department can excel on their own, and that you deliver the customer experience and impact you want.
Driving, this kind of alignment is very challenging and many organizations lack the expertise and experience they need to do it quickly and effectively.
