UX Speakeasy: Is Design Metrically Opposed?

As part of our UX Easy Speaker Series, Jared Spool will answer the question “Is Design Metrically Opposed?”

In the world of measures, metrics, and Key Performance Indicators some practices, like the growth hacking approach to increasing Monthly Average Users (MAUs), have hurt the online experience of Instagram and LinkedIn. While alternatives to satisfaction and net promoter score give insight into the design process and help designers have better instincts.
