Decisions we make every day are driven by cognitive biases designed to save time and energy. These mental shortcuts serve us well. Marketers have used this knowledge to build successful marketing strategies for many years. Armed with the same knowledge, is it possible for us to build more engaging products?

Part of designing a great product is convincing users to behave in a way to reach a specific outcome. Behavioural design provides us a framework to think about how habits work and what makes them easier to form. It specifically shows how using motivation, ability, and triggers can shape a user's behavior.

In this talk, we'll look at using behavioural design to build an engagement loop. Chris will share how he integrates these ideas into their Agile development process. You'll leave with practicable steps for applying these ideas to your next product.
