Companies in the early stages of customer success require their CS resources to wear many hats and cover some of the functions owned by customer experience and customer success operations. Then, as they start to mature, they work toward operational efficiency with defined roles and functions. As such, we are now seeing an increase in organizations that have both a CX team and a CS operations team. As we look at these two groups, many of our TSIA members are asking the question: what are the differences between CX and CS operations? We have conducted research to highlight the similarities and differences between customer success and customer experience, and we will share our findings.

TSIA is well worth the investment. This is the one place where you can come and get a fusion of ideas that you can then marry up to the goals and objectives of your organization and boil that down into several actionable plans that you can implement over the next 6 months to a year.
