Main takeaways: - Why metrics matter - How to set product and feature success metrics - Measuring core metrics post-launch to know whether you’re successful - Combining qualitative & quantitative insights - Common pitfalls that most product teams run into Meet the Speaker: Sarah Jacobson Sarah is a Product Manager at Square and was previously a Product Manager at Stride Health.

  • What Are Product Optimization Tactics by Bills.com Senior PM

    Product School San Francisco

    ***RSVP on EventBrite: http://bit.ly/2GLlUW8 *** Your optimization and testing strategy can potentially determine the success or failure of your product.

Understanding the strengths and weaknesses of each approach will be critical in forming a winning optimization strategy.
