Certified Customer Success Management Professional (CCSMP)

A practical training experience

Strategy and concepts set the scene and provide the context, but the real value of training comes not from just being taught what to do and why to do those things but how to do them.

Answering these “what?”, “why?” and all-important “how?” questions is the focus of our CCSMP training program, but we go further than that and also explain when and in what order they should be completed, and provide you with the tools to ensure you perform complex tasks to a consistently high quality whilst simultaneously increasing your productivity and efficiency.

Framework-based to make life easier

The CCSMP certification program is based on the Practical CSM Framework – a best practice framework that covers the entire spectrum of customer success tasks right through the entire customer lifecycle.

Having the Practical CSM Framework at your back is like having a spare pair of helping hands to assist you in the performance of your duties. It reminds you what needs to be done next, it explains the steps needed to perform each task and it provides you with clarity around how to manage your time and activities to maximize the positive impact you can create both for your customers and for your own company.
