PHASE 9: CS ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES

Determine which types of roles are necessary and how they will interact with each other and other functions.

 

The right playbook needs the right people running it. Depending on where you are in your Customer Success journey, your expansion plans, and what your customers need, you will need to tailor your team’s talent profile to meet those needs.
