Just Mad's North Star Metric Workshop

How does your product grow?

This is probably the most challenging question for most product teams. Getting alignment on different initiatives when everybody's viewing things through different lenses, can be difficult. People run in different directions when they have different understandings of how their product grows.

Enter, the North Star Metric Framework!

But what is it, and how can it help you? The North Star Metric Framework is a proven method, that helps you define a specific metric that best captures the core value your product delivers to customers. Focusing on and optimizing company-wide efforts to improve your Nort Star Metric is key to driving long-term sustainable growth in your company.

It helps product teams answer critical questions like:

  • How can we deliver better value to our customers while driving revenue?

  • How does our day-to-day work connect with tangible impact

  • How are we sure we're working on the right things?

  • How can our teams break down the silos and achieve alignment?
