An account plan outlines the strategy and actions necessary to manage and grow a specific customer account or client relationship. Use this template to take your relationship to the next level.


While customers will benefit from an Account Plan exercise, there is great value for the CSM as the Account Plan can assist with:


  • Understanding Customer Needs: An account plan provides the CSM with valuable insights into the customer's business objectives, challenges, and priorities. This understanding enables the CSM to tailor their approach and support to meet the customer's specific needs effectively.

  • Strategic Planning: An account plan serves as a roadmap for the CSM to guide their interactions and engagements with the customer. It outlines key milestones, success criteria, and action items, enabling the CSM to develop strategic plans for driving customer success.

  • Progress Tracking: An account plan enables the CSM to track progress against agreed-upon goals and milestones. By monitoring key performance indicators (KPIs) outlined in the plan, the CSM can assess the customer's progress, identify areas for improvement, and make data-driven decisions to optimize outcomes.

  • Communication and Collaboration: An account plan facilitates communication and collaboration between the CSM and the customer. By sharing the plan with the customer and seeking their input and feedback, the CSM can foster open dialogue and build trust and rapport with the customer.

  • Risk Management: An account plan helps the CSM identify and mitigate risks that may impact the customer's success. By proactively addressing potential challenges and developing contingency plans, the CSM can minimize disruptions and ensure a smooth implementation process.
