  17. 17. What is Product Research? When Should I Do Research? Why Invest in Research? Who Should do Research? Background Recap Research helps create clarity & clearly define the problem, so you can design the best solution for the intended user base. Throughout the product design & development process, but especially at the beginning & throughout design. Build user-informed products that, as a result, are higher quality & more inclusive. Save money by proving (or disproving) ideas early on. At a minimum, the design team. Ideally, everyone from the team who has bandwidth to participate to some degree.

  19. 19. UX - U = X User Experience User Experience
  20. 20. Meet with One Customer Each Week1 • Great for generative research & ongoing usability testing • Since you’ll likely be scheduling these in advance, you can bake in more pointed concept tests • If you have trouble recruiting customers, onboard new hires to your product and capture their thoughts/reactions
  21. 21. • Great for concept validation • Gives you more structured responses vs. open-ended interviews • Rather than send out a survey, you can host individual, moderated Kano sessions with 7-12 people that match your user profile Conduct a Quick Kano2 Credit: Smashing Magazine
  22. 22. • Great for evaluative research • Three ways to facilitate “attack the concept”: • Host a weekly meeting where you can share designs and get feedback • Post designs in a prominent, physical part of your office with sticky notes next to them for feedback • Maintain a dedicated Slack channel for feedback Facilitate Internal “Attack the Concept” Opportunities 3
  23. 23. Meet with One Customer a Week Conduct a Qualitative, Quick Kano Facilitate Internal “Attack the Concept” Opportunities Methods Recap Great way to get ongoing feedback for whatever concepts, features, & new designs you have. Helps to put more structure around a user interview & can add qualitative color to the responses you would typically get from this survey. If recruiting potential or existing users is not a viable option, hosting feedback sessions with team members (outside the core product team) can bring a fresh perspective.

  25. 25. Skip the Note Taking
  26. 26. And if You Do Take Notes…
  27. 27. • If you’re short on time, have a discussion & takes notes on the key learnings to add to the product roadmap or backlog • If you have a ton to go through, put insights & evidence on sticky notes & group these into themes Debrief after Each Session
  28. 28. Keep Track of Themes in a Rainbow Sheet Use Empathy Maps to Share Digestible Summaries Host Debriefs after Each Session Synthesis Recap Rainbow sheets can create a visual representation of common themes & insights that come up across multiple interviews. Instead of sharing a bulleted list of notes, use an empathy map to communicate user feedback. For both large and small groups, schedule a debrief immediately following feedback sessions to ensure everyone heard the same thing.
