Experimental Mind: Hippo's, Mountains, Slacking, Growing Experimentation Culture

Experimental Mind
Hey friends,
In today’s Experimental Mind newsletter five articles, from Jeff Gothelf, Tom Kerwin, Jacob Singh, Ben Dressler and Experiment Nation. Plus … updated job opportunities and events.
Everything is handpicked and in one easy digestible email, so you can focus on running your experiments. Enjoy.

📰 What I've been reading this week
1. The Highest Paid Person's Opinion
2. Funnels vs Mountains
We are all familiar with the conversion funnel. Tom Kerwin makes the case we should actually turn it around: it’s a mountain.
We can increase people’s motivation to climb the mountain by reducing the height, making the climb easier, or make the top of the mountain more desirable.
Tom Kerwin
You've heard of the conversion funnel.

It's actually upside down.

It looks more like a mountain.

You’re asking prospects to climb your mountain.

And getting to the top takes a certain amount of motivation.

(Yes, this is a disgraceful oversimplification of CRO for funnels.)
4. The case for slacking off at work
5. Grow an experimentation culture at your company
Ben Dressler (former Spotify) shares his ideas in this short lecture series:
