As a data scientist at Twitch, it was my job to help people use evidence to make good decisions. I found that step 1 was actually training my colleagues to clearly communicate how they expected a plan to go. For many critical decisions there just isn't much data to go on, and expert intuition is the most important evidence to leverage. One week I made a training module using a Google form that 97% of Twitch staff would recommend to a colleague. That's when I knew I was onto something. I automated my most important job, and that’s where Evident came from.

The same regimen empowers teams to more accurately predict which projects will be massive hits or tragically delayed. For a thorough explanation checkout this post .
