Four Links to Make You Think: May 3rd-7th

This week on Four Links To Make You Think: Habits vs. Behaviors with Wendy Wood, exposing the blueprint behind algorithmic nudging for the win, Nudgestock 2021 with Oglivy, and what happens when the RCT outperforms the market application.

At Signol, we’re constantly looking at products, initiatives, and news that inspire and move us to keep striving to be the best company we possibly can be. We used to get some of that information from meeting new customers, peers at Founders Factory, and networking - but since Covid-19, we’re primarily sharing internally.

To keep up the spirit of sharing findings we’re passionate about, we’ve decided to run a series called Four Links To Make You Think weekly through the summer. Feel free to respond with your own findings, comments, or share away! We’re looking forward to seeing all of your thoughts and debate - just like we do internally.
