This Article is devoted to busting top 7 customer success myths which might be misleading to customer success leaders and executives.
Conventional wisdom says that you need a CSM for every $2 million in annual recurring revenue. However we believe it depends heavily on your product, your customer segment, and your CSMs. The goal is to have enough CSMs to adequately service your accounts without spending unnecessary resources, the number circulating in the market should be used as an initial guidance, at best.
NPS can be useful as an indicator only if you can get a heavy percentage of your customers to respond, or at least a good spread.

However, the more appropriate term to focus on might be “adoption journey” which covers the ground after the consumer has purchased, following their lifecycle to improve retention through customer success.
There are two situations where you might not want to control customer churn:
