Hi Pine, Metrics will still be included in these meetings, though they will be structured a little differently moving forward.
We’re experimenting with including metrics throughout the presentation rather than in a defined section. This may also mean using different metrics based on the work being described. The goal is to to take a more holistic approach to measuring our work and focus on communicating impact. We see this as a work in progress and look forward to continuing to evaluate what’s working for metrics meetings, what’s not, and how we can improve. I hope this helps clarify.
