While the Hi.P.P.O is often rightly derided as a terrible decision making process, there are some situations where it’s actually a good thing. So here are 3 reasons why we might want to listen to the Hi.P.P.O.

  1. Testing is Expensive
  2. Choose Your Battles Wisely
  3. Authority Ends Debate

Lessons Learned:Know the cost of running a test. Choose your battles. Debating opinions is wasteful. All opinions are equal in the absence of data.

I love the phrase "listen to the HiPPO".

Basically, think through your tests because each test costs you time and energy.
