Before we get started, I think it is time that we all stare down the bull. Thanks State Street.

Chat of the Day
Does your product team move fast enough? Probably not.

Sure, you have quick sprints and push code weekly, maybe even nightly, but it’s just not enough anymore. In order to stay competitive (read: alive), you need to be constantly pushing the limits and reinventing sprints. The strongest product and engineering teams are made up of a nice balance of science, art, process and chaos.

New York based New Haircut is in a league of their own and have worked with companies like J&J, Coach, Hearst, Techstars and more. Their design sprint process is what sets them apart and it can immediately have an impact on your business. But the best thing about the New Haircut crew is that they truly value community and work tirelessly to spread their knowledge.

Joining us today for office hours is the CEO of New Haircut, Jay Melone. Jay holds design sprint workshops all over the world (seriously) and is ready to work with you. Get your product team ready to chat with Jay at 2:30pm ET.

And now my turn. I’m writing this from HubSpot, have used Tweetdeck and Hootsuite and am switching to Marketo as we speak and I still don’t know what the best social marketing automation tool out there is. AND I NEED TO KNOW. What do you use? How do you intelligently manage your distribution of content over multiple social accounts? While keeping an eye on user sentiment and follower growth? Hit me up!
