    Alberto Savoia is a successful practitioner, expert, coach, author, and speaker on the topic of high-yield innovation through experimentation. His area of focus and expertise is in helping already successful and established companies innovate like startups.

His prior responsibilities at Google included being the first Director of Engineering, where he led the group that launched Google's multi-billion-dollar AdWords.

    Savoia is the co-founder of PretotypeLabs, which was started in 2012, to help disseminate the theory and practice of pretotype-driven innovation which he developed while he was at Google.
