Readers of this blog know how important customer success is and how we view it in the context of building a great early stage company. Client journey mapping is not something that is super obvious to most of our audience. Therefore, we dove right into it on the podcast. We set the framework and define what it means. We discussed how to actually execute it at your company. Timing is important for client journey mapping, so we examined when exactly a founder should think about doing this. We covered value levers and details on the people that tend to own this exercise for your organization. Finally, we talked through some businesses that do this well and those that do not.
