    @Kevin Reinhardt great call out! Yes, without a great handoff and getting that understanding of the goals of the customer discussed during the sales process, you are either asking repeat questions or missing some necessary information.

    Guessing this blog was focused on methods after the handoff and likely made an assumption that a process exists to start the planning (don't want to speak for Julie, but I know in other conversations around this topic it came up).

    Thanks for adding that foundational piece to the conversation!

    Thanks @Kevin Reinhardt - Awesome point!

    This absolutely begins with both marketing and sales - it should all be cohesive and all should not only be speaking the same language but the information gathered during the sales process should be utilized in CS so the customer feels heard and doesn't feel like they are "starting over" post-sales.

    I know I mentioned that ideally we have those notes... but truly, this should be a focus of its own. BUT if a company doesn't have those notes... that doesn't mean CS cannot engage in conversations with their customers.
