How Shopify Guides Consistent Product Improvements
About This Episode
It’s easy to get caught up in the excitement of dropping big, bold, and shocking product changes without a lot of forethought. But, unless you’re Apple or Tesla, this approach to design just isn’t sustainable.

Listen as host J Cornelius and guest Katrina Bautista uncover user research methods and team alignment tactics that enable this dependable shipping schedule.
- ‘MacGyvering’ research to bring customer desires to light
- Applying psychology principles to user research questions to reveal truths
- Using the “Anti-Surprise Law” to safeguard product improvement releases
