📰 What I’ve been reading this week
This is the third post in a multi-part series on how Netflix uses A/B tests to inform decisions and continuously innovate on our products.
Timothy Chan explains how to best deal with overlapping experiments.

3. Designing experiments with new ways of working
John Cutler’s advice:
The honest answer to this question is usually: “I need a new story that’s more immediate, more vivid and most of all, more culturally aligned than the one I have now.” … An anecdote is not evidence. But we often treat it that way.
This is the opposite of a full course, playbooks are bit-sized explainers on how to accomplish a specific task.
Just-in-time learning is focused on meeting the learner’s need when it arises, rather than pre-scheduled education sessions that occur regardless of the immediacy or scope of need.
