This week, Jan Young from The Success League shares her views on making Customer Success teams more strategic.

One of the big issues is that new CS teams are often the 'catch-all' as processes are built and the company grows. Jan shares the importance of avoiding the 'gap-filler' moniker the long term, making the team role very concrete and unpolluted.

She shares a number of areas that should be addressed, some specifics on  the how, and especially the why.

The biggest piece to keep in mind is that you have to utilize your team well, with clearly thought out processes that allow them to be proactive rather than reactice.
