This attitude has a negative impact on new entrants to the industry and sets completely the wrong tone for the next generation.

Carlos shares most strategic actions that a new Experimentation Strategist (or Program Manager) can execute during their first three months in the role to increase trust among the stakeholders and clients.
Many optimizers are good at using data to craft hypotheses. Great optimizers, however, build data-driven segments, analyze by business goals (not just test KPIs), and importantly, propose how to take action on campaign results.
Creating a customer journey map can help stakeholders better understand the customer’s experience, and helps ensure that all stakeholders are working towards the same goal. It can also help identify potential areas of improvement, and provide insights into how customers interact with your product, service, or organization.
If you change jobs quickly, will employers think you’re a job-hopper? Tracy shares her opinion.
Teams are horrible at this! They have no idea it should happen, and if they do, they’re usually lost and the approach is terrible. When you break it down, it’s really not difficult. This shouldn’t be a black box anymore.

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. But if we were to structure our ecommerce website on those occasions alone, we may be addressing the majority, but we’d be missing out on the real motivation behind the purchase as well as other reasons people buy flowers.

And if you need any more convincing, I have four words for you: Monte Cristo Bread Pudding.

Taz talks about the challenges around Experimentation that no one talks about.
This session is about the conundrum that “data is everything” – a mentality circulating at large the past couple years. There’s so much data, and we often find ourselves simply staring at metrics looking for “+” or “-” to make decisions. The objective of this session is to draw on thinking strategies from physics, of how to approach CRO differently, without any real “data”, to then gleam positive impacts to CRO.
The success of your testing program depends on the quality of your hypotheses.

Too often experiments are squandered. But if you put customer problems first and design the right type of test you can ensure every experiment is valuable to your business. The following talk will give your experimentation programs guardrails to make sure you’re not testing for testing sake.
Everybody is doing it, so you have to do it too, right? As my mom used to say: you’re not everyone! Best practices are not experimentation and you should know that. I want to prove to you this is the easy way, but it’s not the right way for a healthy, profitable and experiment-oriented business. 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. It may generate new ideas and grab your attention when you’re starting to experiment, but that’s the only good thing. To have a great experiment culture, you need to learn from your tests. Let’s talk more about this?
CRO should be the foundation that all of your other digital marketing efforts rests upon. Through what we call our ‘Ripple Benefits’, I’d love to showcase just how CRO not only improves your conversion rates, but your SEO, Content Marketing, Paid Ads, and more.

Experimentation post-conversion or how to switch from buying journey to customer journey.
A quick and dirty guide to pointing out bad practices that create friction to the customer when brands practice the company journey instead of the customer journey.
Our industry is focused on the individual elements of what we do and how we do it, but not why we do it and the overall philosophy for it. This is part of the reason that businesses don’t give it the traction it deserves; senior business leaders are not interested in the execution, they’re interested in the overall benefit.
