Data makes great decisions. We don’t. Leadership is a science, not an art. The last decision you should make is to never make another decision. Data makes the only great decisions. Get out of its way. Squeaky-wheel meetings are for suckers. When it comes to web development & shopping cart optimization, we now live in an age of ubiquitous A/B tests – even, often A/B/C/D/E/F/G tests. This is *Growth Hacking*. But beyond the web funnel, leaders & the teams along-side of them are still making decisions the old way – fueled by gut & debate. So why isn’t *Leadership Hacking* a thing? Why should strong data-backed decision-making be limited to your web funnel? It shouldn’t. The same disciplined demand for stats & experimentation should be applied to every decision leaders make. We have the desire… & the data… & the algorithms… to make this better. It’s time to embrace the science of leadership. If you’re not looking at data when you make it – then it’s not a decision… it’s a guess.Hide the rest

Product management, growth, & engagement leader at Sequoia Capital-backed startup, BigPanda in San Francisco. I am a growth-hacking, software-delivery geek, keynote-speaker, collaboration ninja, agile project manager, innovative marketer, technology strategist, digital implementation guy, and futurist. I help software teams change the world. I have passionately led software product management teams, product development teams, and product growth teams for some of the world's most ubiquitous software. When you log bugs in JIRA, the world's most powerful issue tracker, check out at the grocery store, search for a job, or play interactive promotions like McDonald’s Monopoly, you’re probably using software that I helped make for you. My newest adventure is with BigPanda helping to change the world for Modern Ops teams. I help distributed teams collaborate and make awesome software more intelligently, effectively, and exponentially better...in spite of timezone and language barriers.Hide the rest
