33 Tangents - Episode #55 - Dealing With A Client That Micromanages

May 17, 2019

As consultants, we’ve all been there.  You come across that one client that wants to micromanage you as if you were one of their own employees.  This kind of practice is unhealthy when it comes to employees and can be downright disastrous with consultants.  What are the issues a consultant can experience when a client tries to micromanage the relationship?  How should it be dealt with to ensure a health, productive relationship?

33 Tangents - Episode #54 - Dealing with the Analytics Turnover Problem

33 Tangents - Episode #54 - Dealing with the Analytics Turnover Problem

May 10, 2019

The Analytics space is one that sees rapid turnover.  According to Corey Prohens at IQ Workforce is that most who work in analytics, either on the implementation or on the analysis & insights side, move jobs every 18 months.  This results in a feeling of repeated reset and slow progression.  What are some other issues that are the result of this constant change?  What can be done to mitigate the issues and reduce the churn?  This week Jim and Jason sit down and talk through the complicated topic.

33 Tangents - Episode #51 - Talking Data Layers with Jim Gordon - Part 1

April 19, 2019

This week Jason and Jim are joined by TMS Guru Extraoidinaire, Jim Gordon.  For those that don’t know Jim, he spent time with Search Discovery as they were building Satellite which became DTM after it was acquired by Adobe.  He’s the author of the frequently used and referenced “DTM Cheat Sheet” and over the last 5 years he’s been building Tagtician which is a browser companion tool to help users debug, export, and explore their DTM, and now Adobe Launch, libraries.

 

The Jims had a recent conversation about data layers and how they are critical to a robust analytics implementation and a well integrated martech stack and Jim Gordon has authored a blog post appealing to Adobe to develop a standard.  Why is that important?  How will that help with data collection and distribution.

33 Tangents - Episode #48 - How do you develop a level of mastery that enables you to slow things down?

33 Tangents - Episode #48 - How do you develop a level of mastery that enables you to slow things down?

March 29, 2019

On a recent episode, Jason discussed the idea of developing mastery in one’s craft.  As part of that conversation, both he and Jim talked about how elite athletes develop their mastery to such a degree that they are able to slow the pace of a game down to a level where they can be 2 steps ahead of anyone else on the playing field (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBgsRbOl7X4).  How can an individual go about creating mastery in their craft so as to slow the pace down to the level they need it to be so they are successful?  How do you prevent rash decision making?  How do you not get caught up in others’ frantic pace?

33 Tangents - Episode #47 - When Is It Time To Switch Tools/Vendors?

33 Tangents - Episode #47 - When Is It Time To Switch Tools/Vendors?

March 22, 2019

We frequently come across 1 of 2 scenarios.  We either have a company that has a tool (or set of tools) that are in place and no matter the work they put into them, the tool doesn’t fit their need and they don’t move on and find a better tool, or we have a company that switches tools or vendors the minute there is a sign of trouble.  Neither of these are good or healthy.  This week Jason and Jim discuss when it is the right time to switch to a new tool or vendor.  What should be taken into account before making the firm decision to stay or move?  Are either staying too long or changing too frequently signs of a bigger organizational issue?

 

THINGS WE MENTIONED

33 Tangents - Episode #46 - You Take Your Bracket Seriously, Why Don’t You Take Your Testing Program Seriously?

33 Tangents - Episode #46 - You Take Your Bracket Seriously, Why Don’t You Take Your Testing Program Seriously?

March 15, 2019

With March Madness right around the corner, you’re going to see many spending a great deal of time putting their tournament brackets together.  Why does if feel like some of these people spend more time and effort on that than their testing program?  We’ve come across many who don’t take their testing program seriously and just slap stuff together.  There’s no planning, there’s no deep analysis, and the results show. 

What do you do to convince people that to get the most out of a testing program, you just can fly by the seat of your pants and see what happens?  Aren’t testing programs supposed to let you move rapidly so you can learn?
