[Event] How experimentation fits into your product roadmap

Learn more about how to combine experimentation with your agile development process and continuous delivery

In this workshop we will:

  • explore how to reap the rewards of creativity and problem solving through product experimentation
  • accelerate your agile processes
  • and look at how experimentation platforms complement lean software delivery practices

Put simply, experimentation helps development teams determine if they’re building the right product. By exposing new versions of software to a portion of customers while the remainder continue with the original experience, teams can quickly assess if their new updates are improvements or regressions. Experimentation, in essence, becomes the feedback loop through which teams determine if their products are impacting customers in a positive way.  An important component are experimentation platforms because they enable developments teams to test ideas directly with customers, experiment with functional parameters, and release new service components in a safe and controlled manner.

Why experiment-driven product development matters

Jon Noronha, Senior Director, Product Management, Optimizely


Experimentation is at the core of today’s most successful software products, from Amazon to Google to Facebook to Netflix. These companies use A/B testing and controlled rollouts to de-risk development and measure the impact they’re making with new ideas. In this session you will learn how to
Reduce the risk of launching new features
Apply experimentation to your development process with Optimizely X Full Stack
Prove the impact of every new feature or user experience change


Getting Feeded. Personalizing the Mobile Real Estate Search

Markus Meixner, Product Manager for Consumer Experience, and Michael Stein, Business Analyst, Scout24


Next to AI, north stars and friends personalization is yet another buzz word that means many things to many people. To embed it into a practical framework Markus and Michael will outline how personalization is driven at ImmobilienScout24 on mobile, what challenges need to be overcome and to which extent experimentation is integral part of that journey. Together both Scouts combine more than 10 years of work experience in growth-oriented product development, A/B testing and analytics.


Panel featuring Delivery Hero, mobile.de and SumUp

In this panel we will explore how to drive product and business improvements by and experimenting across our entire engineering, product, and marketing lifecycles discussing five questions: How does your product development process work currently? Do you work agile? With Scrum or another framework? How do you approach User Centered Design Process (UCD) with Product Discovery and Product Execution streams with interdisciplinary teams? Do you constantly validate your product development efforts based on customer feedback? If so what methods do you use? What are your biggest challenges in your product development process? Which chances and challenges do you see in implementing quantitative product experimentation into your product development processes? How would you connect product and marketing experimentation within your organization?

Experimenting our way forward

Qianheng will speak about how experimentation has evolved @ HelloFresh over the past couple of years, give an overview of their company-wide experimentation process and present examples of successful experiments.
