Taking Netflix From Good to Great

How do you build products and brands people love? Netflix’ ex-VP Product, Gib Biddle, shares how his product team worked in concert with marketing to build a great product and brand. He dives into the early days of product strategy and metrics, as well as some of the company’s successes and failures along the way. He reveals the models used to develop a beloved brand and how these models apply to other consumer tech companies, enabling them to delight customers in hard-to-copy, margin-enhancing ways.
