Event Details

Quantitative measurement is essential to scaling businesses, processes, and products and making them better.  It sounds easy: just pick a number, like clicks or conversions, and improve it.  It's easy to do, but it's not so easy to get it right.

When it goes wrong, the problem is often misdiagnosed as using metrics.  Every story of metrics gone wrong is really a story of badly chosen metrics.  Choosing a metric has been an unsolvable mystery so enigmatic most people don't even know they're trapped inside.  These choices are a mishmash of folklore, partial patterns, and received dogma rather than a rigorous, reliable set of reusable principles.  Until now.

Join Ketan Gangatirkar, Head of Engineering for Indeed's Job Seeker products, for an exploration of both the art and the science of choosing metrics.  You'll walk away with a deep understanding of principles and concepts that determine which metrics are useful for your product and which ones are a waste of time.  You'll gain practical knowledge you can apply to your product to make it even more awesome.

Topics covered:
  • Why measure
  • What is better even
  • An overly-simplistic theory of everything
  • Truth versus utility
  • Motivations, funnels, and the efficient frontier
  • Suites and cascades
  • The devil’s in the details
And more.

This talk will help you choose the right metrics so you can build a better product and build a better business.  Ketan will explore real use cases and walk through the thought process and trade-offs for selecting metrics. You'll walk away with the knowledge and insight of which data to use to drive better decisions.
