Connect work to business strategy with North Star metrics
draft — created — updated
This is an idea from John Cutler1 that solves several related problems around strategy in a product development organization.
Some of the problems this framework addressed:
- How to show people that their work connects to the overall goals of the company
- To keep the focus on Product Metrics, which the product development organization can affect — and not on the Business Metrics, which take longer to change.
Visual explanation of the framework
Example of the framework
This is an example of The Process.
