Not every insight is derived from an A/B Test with Daniela Marquez

Curiosity needs to be a driver in every experimenter’s toolkit. What is going on in the head of my customer? What is really their job-to-be-done? When buying flowers, we typically think of the standard occasions: Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, new baby & sympathy.

These tactics don’t last long.  In this session, we will discuss why, statically, best practices don’t work. It’s fun to know about the competitors, their results and ideas.
