Book Of The Month

June/July 2021: The Customer Success Economy by Nick Mehta and Allison Pickens

Our “Book of the Month” for June/July 2021 is The Customer Success Economy by Nick Mehta and Allison Pickens.

I’ve chosen this book because it’s only fairly recently been published – in fact it came out in June of 2020 – and also because it is written by perhaps two of the most influential individuals within the Customer Success profession to date, namely Nick Mehta, CEO of Gainsight, and Allison Pickens, formerly COO at Gainsight, and now an independent investor in B2B SaaS startups.

Back in 2014, Mehta co-wrote another book, simple titled Customer Success which proved o be one of or perhaps even the number one top selling book on the topic of Customer Success Management. This new book is a little different in that rather than addressing itself to the role of Customer Success Management it instead focuses upon the need for it, and hence the title The Customer Success Economy.
