Real Talk from the Experts:

CS + PM Alignment

In this video series, we take a deep dive into UserIQ’s 2019 CS + PM Alignment Benchmarking Report, based on a survey taken earlier this year by over 400 customer success and product leaders. We wanted to know — where do the gaps lie in team alignment today? What hurdles are teams facing, and how can we work to overcome those challenges? To help us dig into the key findings from the report, we’re talking to customer success and product leaders to get their unique perspectives.


“It’s really important to understand, what’s the goal? Why are we doing it, and what is our job in terms of achieving it? Discussing this in weekly meetings is critical, and gives you something to base your weekly or monthly metrics on.”
