In October of 2018, Split hosted its first-ever conference, DECISIONS. 15 speakers, 330+ attendees, and five sponsors, all gathered in San Francisco to focus on one the key theme:
“What matters is not the speed of delivering releases, but the speed of delivering value.”
– Adil Aijaz, CEO, Split Software
Whether they were from legacy companies looking to modernize how they deliver, or late-stage startups working to validate their product direction, everyone assembled into one room to hear from thought leaders about how to make better product decisions. We learned how to use data to drive product strategy, how to foster a culture of experimentation with your team, how to and where to build in additional measurement, and how to evolve towards a more iterative product lifecycle. DECISIONS speakers across the board evangelized that by measuring the customer and business outcomes of every single feature, we can shift our teams away from focusing on outputs, and avoid shipping features that don’t create real value.
We’ll be blogging more in the coming weeks to dig further into the key themes, but in the interim, here are a few of our favorite speaker highlights.
We sold out the in-person event and received an overabundance of requests for the video content. We wanted to honor those requests, but in a way that includes everyone in the experience. On January 15, 2019 Split will be hosting DECISIONS/Replay in partnership with the SD Times. This online event will feature a rebroadcast of the DECISIONS sessions, followed by a live Q&A with speakers via webcam. We’ll even be featuring two brand new keynotes for those who plan on tuning in for a refresher of what they heard in the room.
To sweeten the deal, we’re donating 100% of the proceeds to BUILD, a non-profit serving youth in under-resourced communities. BUILD’s mission is to use entrepreneurship to ignite the potential of youth and propel them to high school, college & career success.
We invite you and your fellow audacious product people to join us on January 15th as we learn how to deliver valuable software faster and give to a good cause in the process.
