Experiment To Build The Right Thing

with #push18 speaker Anders Toxboe | October 18th

Learn to construct safe-to-fail experiments to validate critical assumptions early, often, and without a cost.

How do you know if what you're building is the right thing? You test. Constantly.

Everybody can agree that testing your product is important, yet so few actually test. Why? Because it's hard, cumbersome, and expensive.
In this workshop, you can learn hands on how to make product testing so easy, fun, and cheap, that you will start testing every day, all the time.

Anders will reveal his playbook of cleverly thought out experiments that can validate your business idea, new feature, or even your customers' willingness to pay. Learn how to construct experiments that will show you whether you're on the right path, fast.

What you will take away:

  • Learn how to reduce the risk of product failure, through systematic testing.
  • The difference between testing the problem, demand, solution, and willingness to pay
  • Learn when and how to test and optimize toward hard data and KPIs
  • Learn when to ditch the business model and start experimenting
  • Learn how to ask for observations rather than preferences
  • Learn how to validate the problem before the solution
  • Learn the inside of clever lean product experiments used by product builders at companies like Spotify, Booking.com, Facebook, Amazon, and Google and recommended by top universities like Havard, MIT, and Stanford.

This is a workshop for people of all skill levels. Pencils, markers and paper will be supplied. At the end of this workshop, you’ll leave the day inspired to create—and ready for action.
