Navigating Toward your North Star Metric

A north star metric is the key measure of success for the product team in a company. It ties your product vision to the everyday decisions you must make. Finding it isn't as easy as looking for the brightest start at night, it involves a deep understanding of what you want to accomplish and what you can measure. This talk will take you through the process of identifying, building and refining your north star metric.
