New Talk: Design Metrics That Matter - Jared Spool
Watch Jared's Talk
Time for another talk from BoS USA 2018. Design is a process where you finely tune your intuition to create great user experiences. Yet, sometimes, what you think is best rivals the metrics. What do you believe – your gut or the data? Jared Spool gave a fantastic talk at #BoS2018 about the importance of understanding the metrics you're tracking.

2 New Speakers For BoS Europe 2019
The BoS Europe speaker list is now nearly full. Very excited to announce 2 more fantastic new speakers here - Randy Silver & Francesco D'Alessio. Here's what they'll be speaking on at BoS Europe this April in Cambridge:
Randy Silver has over 20 years' experience as a product manager & interactive producer - notably launching Amazon’s music stores in the US and UK. In firm after firm, Randy has seen the same problems crop up – prioritising the wrong things and not understanding your customers' real problems. Then he discovered a new technique that generates genuine insight in as little as two weeks. Instead of wondering if you’re committing your teams to solving the right problems, the Insider Insight methodology ensures that you’re asking the right questions.
You'll learn: why the discovery process is broken – but also how you can employ a new approach to fix it that will complement your existing practices.
Francesco D’Alessio is a freelancer, creator, and host of Keep Productive, a weekly YouTube channel and blog where he assists people in finding the perfect productivity software for work and life. People often become less productive as they adopt new apps and tools that don’t fit with their individual work styles, work flows and habits. Few people know their way around the productivity software market like Francesco, and at BoS he'll be helping you think about how to pick software to improve your productivity.
You'll learn: a simple process for how to filter down your options and save time, effort and money by matching the software you use to your needs and goals.
Randy and Francesco join a speakers list for BoS Europe that includes Claire Lew, Derek Sivers, Sarah McVittie, and Amir Salihefendić. Find out more about the speakers below.
