📰 What’s going on

📚 Stuff to think about

  • 3x smartphone users and 11x mobile payment users than in the U.S
  • 61 unicorns based in Beijing, accounting for $300B valuation
  • Chinese ecommerce, media and education companies have adopted a Social+ model, where their business is anchored by a social pillar that drives user engagement and growth
  • Single, actionable, and top-line metric encapsulating the vision for your product. Easy to measure and connected to business drivers.
  • Goals can be set by breaking down business aspirations into smaller chunks. Should define the success of product. For older products, bottom-up forecasting can help connecting goal to top-line metric. Newer products should use a top-down approach that assesses performance relative to external benchmarks.
  • Goals should be measurable, time-bound and staggered across time frames. To stretch the team, define 50–50 goal as well as 80–20 goals. Goals should be sufficiently high-level and avoid the “how.”
