In March of 2013, at the very first Customer Success conference, Totango’s Customer Success Summit, I delivered a plenary presentation on “Building The Customer Success Management Team.” While our profession has grown astronomically all around the globe, some things haven’t changed. The questions I addressed in that session over seven years ago are still being asked, and teams are still struggling to find and deal with the answers. I began with talking about the two keys to successfully establishing Customer Success groups: Properly setting and managing the group’s vision and how it is perceived by customers and the company, and, The Data. I then described four levels of Customer Success groups: Firefighters, Facilitators, Maintainers, and finally, Owners. The video is just over 24 minutes in length.
