Experiment Nation: The Conference 2022 – DAY THREE

How can experimentation be taken more seriously? with Jonny Longden
Many businesses approach conversion optimisation by hiring a single in-house practitioner and believing that they can run all aspects of the discipline.

Most CROs are generally very multiskilled because that have had to learn to be so, however this approach typically leaves them frustrated because they lack the support of specialist resources required to take their craft to the next level.

In truth, optimisation requires a team of very different skills and ways of thinking. This doesn't mean you have to hire a big internal team, but you do need to forward plan where and how you are going to get these skills from when you need them, and need them you will.

You will learn about the comprehensive set of skills and resources needed to scale a data-driven approach.
