Product decisions are crucial for the success of our companies, yet we frequently get them wrong. Often our framework for decision-making relies not on data, but instead on the basis of opinions, intuition, consensus, and biases. Even if we do have data, it’s not always interpreted correctly, or we may read too much into it.
Join Itamar Gilad and learn how to strike the right balance between using data and intuition, to make decisions based on evidence. Modeled after the scientific method, Itamar will walk through his Confidence Meter, a tool he developed to help teams shorten the time spent on making product decisions while increasing the likelihood of making the right ones.
