Learning to generate speed was an essential step in working towards a 700 deadlift. While I don't typically use speed work, there was a period of 6 months where I added Hepburn style high pulls. During this period I noticed that I was pulling far more aggressively on high pulls than I was on deadlifts.

While this is not seen as conventional speed work, it does have a point. I think everyone should try things like speed work for themselves. It might teach you a few things you didn't expect to learn, or a few things that can't be quantified by studies.
