His question got me thinking about its relevance to my business, a theme I explore in today’s episode.

On my way home I reflected on whether I could answer that question for my business. Unfortunately I came to the swift conclusion that I couldn’t.
So I realise I need to have outcome metrics (which I have started to define in terms of my goals) AND activity metrics on the things I need to do to achieve those outcomes.
I don’t have all the answers yet and so my question for you is this:
