Join us in July at Lifion for an exciting presentation by Gibson Biddle entitled Netflix: Wicked Hard Decisions.

Hear how the Netflix team made tough decisions about the hardest things - people, product & business - as it grew to support over 100 million members today. This is inside baseball, revealing the decision-making process behind some of Netflix toughest decisions & reinforcing the importance of strategy, data & intuition to inform decisions & to create a highly innovative product culture.

This highly interactive talk presents five, What would you do? case studies. It presents two frameworks for describing both company & product strategy & illustrates the importance of defining clear tactics & metrics against each strategy. You'll be surprised at the extent Netflix learned through failure to become the worldwide streaming giant that most people know & love today.
