Most startups begin their lives as someone's cool idea. Some of the lucky ones gain traction, funding, and employees. It's human nature to conclude that having cool ideas and implementing them is therefore a recipe for success. But it's not. That's survivorship bias rearing its ugly head.
This talk will demonstrate that the application of absurdly simple arithmetic can give product teams an edge over those that refuse to do any arithmetic. Math! It works! I know. It's crazy.
This talk draws from Dan's direct experience creating a data-driven product culture at Etsy.
