Slack Growth Strategies

Slack growth has showed no signs of slowing down. In only two short years, Slack has become one of the fastest-growing and most beloved enterprise SaaS products of all time.  But the secrets behind its growth aren’t what you might expect: it wasn’t all about analytics and A/B testing.  Slack’s ex-PM lead, Kenneth Berger, tells stories from his time there and shares three surprising principles that helped drive Slack’s success.
