Using Fast Feedback to Make Higher-Confidence Decisions and Accelerate the Dev Process
Michael Mace, VP of Market Strategy at UserTesting, leads this discussion on how to use fast feedback methodologies to make high-confidence product decisions based on objective customer data in real time, without slowing the dev process. Quickly diagnose problems, settle disputes, reduce the risk of rework and iterate faster. This session will include real-world case studies. Brought to you by UserTesting.
Why Founders Should Adopt OKRs Now
Execution is key to a startup’s survival and growth — especially when it comes to fast-moving software and technology products. Standing in the tricky intersection of investors, customers and employees, a founder needs to balance priorities, align teams and create a visionary product that works. Moreover, in this age of hyperfeedback loops and changing business models, the founder must be agile enough to absorb and quickly react to changes in the product roadmap and consumer needs. OKRs, a toolkit used extensively by engineering and product teams, is more than relevant now for founders of all kinds to embrace. Join Rahul Agarwal, product manager at Boomi, to learn the history of OKRs, what they’re about and witness case studies of successful real-life adoption. Brought to you by Dell for Entrepreneurs.
