Let's continue with a name that would be more suitable for the Agile working style, which fully incorporates human at its heart, instead of the mechanical processes and procedures.

How To Build Data-Informed Products

Speaker: Tim Herbig, Director, iridion

As a product manager, you probably know specific ways to gather data to inform your product decisions, like the ever-popular A/B test. But as they say, you wouldn't put a round peg in a square hole. What about the times when it doesn't make sense to A/B test, because you have too small a sample size? Do you just do it anyway, because your company's product culture requires that you have those numbers? Tim Herbig will share his hands-on approach to working with analytics in agile product management. Tim will discuss the line between being data-informed versus data-driven. The audience will leave with an analysis toolkit filled with the right data tools for every scenario. Data validation won't be an issue again.
