* In terms of KPI's shared between product and engineering, I would say "Effective Resource Utilization" can be missed primarily because it can be hard to track and measure across projects/teams. * "Internal team satisfaction" is another one that PM's may not include but this is an ext...more

Some of the worst KPI's in my opinion are: * KPI's that cannot be measured correctly * KPI's that do not give a sense for the goal you are tracking. You can use the AARRR (Acquisition, Activation, Retention, Revenue, Referral) framework to understand the best metrics you can choose to al...more
