Show Notes

Season 2 of the ProducTea! Adam is funny, a friend, and a dad from San Francisco, and does not get any kickback for not recommending JIRA. He’s also an incredibly accomplished brain when it comes to anything Growth and Growth Leadership.

We have both a united love for actionable metrics and we talk about those that we (almost) never touch because they are not:

NPS / CAC / Burndown points and MQLs.
