Description

Being a data-driven company means that we have to move fast and fail often. But how do we learn to not only be proud of our failures but also turn these fails into wins? Grace Tang explains how to set up experiments so that negative results become epic wins, saving your team time, effort, and money, instead of just being swept under the carpet.

  • Cultivating a culture that embraces experiment failure
  • How fear of failure can be harmful to a data-centric culture
