Join the DAA Chicago chapter for a panel discussion about Testing and Measuring User Experience on Thursday, March 21. Measuring and testing user experience is not easy despite a multitude of blog articles claiming to provide tips, tricks, and traps for A/B testing.

A quick Google search of A/B testing returns many articles with titles such as: 60 Easy A/B Testing Ideas You Can Run Today to Boost Conversions, 13 Dumb A/B Testing Mistakes That Are Wasting Your Time, and The Ultimate Guide to A/B Testing.

Google found 782 million results. Despite the well-meaning intention of all of these articles, they don’t address the one truth that optimization experts understand: A/B testing is really hard to do right. You will need the designer to create the variations in the experience, the data scientist to ensure that you have the data to predict if you are going down the right path and the optimization expert who knows the tool and can help you understand the results of your effort. 
 
TL;DR: It takes a team to measure and test user experience the right way.
 
Come join us at the cool 1871 space and listen to our panel of experts share their experiences on what it takes to run an optimization program. They will share the challenges that they learn that can help you choose the right people and build the right team so you can measure and test UX meaningfully at your company.

You will learn:

  • What it really takes to optimize the right way
  • How to build a cross-discipline team
  • Pitfalls to watch out for when building an optimization program at your company
Food and beverage will be provided.
