We strive to improve our Meetups, and we know that the best way to do that is to learn from your experiences with them.

We have created a very short survey and kindly ask you to spend 3 minutes to answer it.

Behind the scenes

" Could you talk a bit about the organisational structure at Alm.Brand - Resposibilities, Roles and Relations. Where does your team fit in ? "


Behind the scenes

" How autonomous are your teams really? Do you have to sell ideas, concepts, and hypotheses to leaders and boards? When and how do you get buy-in?"


Behind the scenes

" How does the strategic goals from the dynamic roadmap correlate with each other? When you are focusing on improving user experience, are you measuring the effect on other parts of your business, like cost and revenue? "


Behind the scenes

" How do you measure your results? Do you have some examples besides the rating in appstore? "


Behind the scenes

" You mentioned that during your "Understanding" phase (in Double Diamond), that you SOMETIMES interview users.
How early do you usually start including users, and have you experienced any downsides in including them too early? "


Behind the scenes

" Your approach is based on using quantitative data to derive the qualitative data as well if I am correct in my understanding. However, don't you think its essential to actually talk to users, observe them? I mean go out on the field and do actual user testing like interviews, usability testing, etc? If you do when do you decide you need to do actual usability testing and interview? "


Behind the scenes

" How time consuming is it to code and organize all the qualitative answers? ...Looks time a full time job to me:-P student assistents do it? "


Behind the scenes

" As you, we are building an app that is not driven by sales. Therefore we can not use a sale as a succcesfull user funnel - which seems to be the case of most material.
Can you recommend any litterature on data driven design that does not evolve around e-commerce? "


Behind the scenes

" Do you have any advice on how someone can influence their company to start using more data-driven design? "
