This week, I had the pleasure of speaking with Kristen Berman. She’s a behavioral scientist, CEO, and co-founder of Irrational Labs, helping teams apply behavioral design research to their products and services.
We covered multiple ways to think about behavior design, like studying the physical environment in which decisions are made, resolving conflicts with established metrics, and mapping customers’ path to your desired behavior using what Kristen calls “getting uncomfortably specific”.
Long-time listeners know that any day I get to geek out about behavioral design with an expert is a good day, so naturally, this episode was as fun as it was educational. Enjoy!
