What’s the difference between a stage and a status?

  • A stage indicates whether a project is active or archived, while a status tells team members the progress of an idea throughout the course of experimentation.
  • The two terms are essentially synonyms; both the stage and status indicate whether an idea is active in the experimentation process with a color-coded node.
  • The stage indicates where in the experimentation process an idea is while a status lets team members know whether an idea is backlogged, active, or archived.
  • The stage is indicated by a colored icon and tells team members whether or not the idea has been promoted to an actual project in experimentation. Status tells team members where the active project is in the experiment process.

You’ve decided that you’d like to subdivide your experimentation group so some can focus exclusively on app creation. What’s the best way to accomplish this?

  • Assign the people you want to participate in the app creation exclusively to those experiments
  • Create a team for app experimentation in Program Management and add the people you want to focus on app development to the team
  • Create a new team for each project initiative, regardless of whether the teams currently overlap, since you need to set up as many of your teams as possible during initial Project Management setup.
  • You need to contact Optimizely in order to set up more teams. Once the teams are set up by Optimizely, you can add whomever you wish to them.

What is one thing the Love score can indicate?

  • The strategic importance of an idea
  • Whether you think the stakeholder will love the idea
  • How you think visitors will feel about the idea
  • Whether the idea will make a lasting impact on the site or app

Why are tags useful?

  • They can help you categorize ideas
  • They indicate which ideas belong to which department
  • They allow followers to know what topics are being experimented on
  • They allow team members to search for key terms related to an idea
