We Need More ART in CRO with Jimmy Barber

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.

Best practices might be killing your experimentation culture – 3 reasons why with Ana Catarina Cizilio

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?
