Finding the right scope for product development in order to build products that customers want is crucial for success. An important approach for steering development towards the right scope is to continuously conduct experiments. Insights from such experiments directly influence frequent iterative deliveries. Success cases from industry show that such an approach helps companies to gain competitive advantage by reducing uncertainties and rapidly finding product roadmaps that work. However, defining and conducting the right experiments can be challenging:
How can we identify the relevant questions we need to answer for making good product decisions? How can we find the right hypotheses to test? How can we define metrics that inform product decisions? How can we justify the efforts for experimentation? How can we link the experimental findings with product decisions and dynamically change a product roadmap? This talk answers the questions above and provides a step-by-step blueprint to put continuous experimentation into action.
