Sydney

Introduction to Product Analytics

  • Tuesday, November 23, 2021, at 5:30pm AEST

Hosted by Emily Chen, Product Talks Sydney welcomes Xinlin Tan, Senior Solutions Consultant, APAC, Mixpanel for ‘Introduction to Product Analytics’ on Tuesday November 23, 2021, at 5:30pm AEST.

Behind every great product is a brilliant product team…and well-analysed product data that enables the team to better understand their users, and optimise their user experience. Product analytics allow product teams to understand how users are engaging with their products and ensure every product decision made begins and ends with data.

Most successful product teams are able to harness the power of product analytics by asking the right questions, collecting the necessary data, and turning these data into actionable insights that guide their next steps in building better products. In fact, studies have shown that companies that use product analytics are likely to be far more profitable than companies that don’t.

If you are a product leader, designer or developer, join us for this 1 hour workshop where you will learn:

  • What is Product Analytics and why is it important?
  • How does Product Analytics differ from marketing/web analytics and BI?
  • How to choose the right metrics to measure product success?
  • How to use Product Analytics to learn more about user behaviour to better convert, engage, and retain them?

Changing the World through Radical Products while Embracing Responsibility

  • Tuesday November 30, 2021, at 5pm EDT

Radhika Dutt will be joining us for the next session of Product Talks New York. Facilitated by Adrienne Tan, Radhika will be sharing with us ‘Changing the World Through Radical Products While Embracing Responsibility’ on Tuesday 30 November, 2021, at 5pm ET.

In the last decade, as innovation has increasingly become short-term driven, we’ve invested in adopting methodologies such as Lean and Agile to harness the power of iteration and innovate faster. We’ve invested in a fast car, but our ability to set a clear destination and navigate to it hasn’t kept up.

When we iterate without a clear vision or strategy, our products become bloated, fragmented, and driven by irrelevant metrics. They catch “product diseases” that often kill innovation. In the process, we also create collateral damage in society in the form of digital pollution.

In this talk by the author of Radical Product Thinking, Radhika Dutt, we’ll challenge conventional wisdom about what makes a good vision and talk about why the current mantras for product development fall short. You’ll learn a radical and repeatable model for building world-changing products. It’ll give you practical tools to develop a vision for the change you want to bring about in the world and translate that systematically into reality.
