Lukas Vermeer — Can small companies do effective A/B testing?

In this episode I speak with Lukas Vermeer, former head of experimentation at Booking.com, and currently working with Vistaprint. He answers the question of whether A/B testing makes sense in small companies and startups, and with small numbers of customers. We also discuss the broader topic of experimentation in general, and applying the scientific method to business development.
