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 at all rather than which metrics were used. 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 haphazard result of folklore, recipes, and blind guessing, a.k.a. "intuition," rather than a rigorous, scientific set of reusable principles. Until now.

Join Ketan Gangatirkar, VP of Engineering for Indeed's Job Seeker products, for an exploration of the artful science of choosing metrics. You'll walk away with 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.

Speaker Bio

Now all he wants is scientific evidence. He was analytical before it was cool. It's not cool, and it never has been, but he's still hoping. Someday. Someday…
