Connect work to business strategy with North Star metrics

draftcreated 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: 1. How to show people that their work connects to the overall goals of the company 2. 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. 3. others?
