The 4 Teams Within Customer Success Organizations. At Gainsight’s Pulse Conference on Customer Success, Mike McKee of Rapid7 spoke about the structure of his customer success team.

It’s the best visualization I’ve seen to describe the sales and customer success process and the inter-team collaboration required to be successful. The four parts of his customer success team are: Sales Engineers/PreSales participate in the sales process with account executives to close the sale.Professional Services provides customers software customization and training.Customer Success Managers nurtures and expands the accounts.The Learning Team provides customers ongoing help with best practices, knowledge bases, webinars to maximize product use and drive retention.

First obvious fact: there is an incredibly wide divergence of success -- some of those startups are insanely successful, some highly successful, many somewhat successful, and quite a few of course outright fail.
