Goals before Metrics


There is no single definition of Customer Success because the very charter to "make customers successful" varies immensely with each engagement and organization's maturity. The well-meaning, hard-working CS teams all strive to do more, and we want to avoid efforts made in vain.  

My curiosity has led me to ask hundreds of CSMs about their roles and how they measure their success. How many do you think gave a strong, confident, clear-cut answer to both?

How would you or your teams respond?
