    • Right environment People don’t like being tested. Save the Where and how to do research? talk of ‘user testing’, ‘lab based research’ and ‘testing facilities’ for your client. People like to be helpful and have their opinion listened to. Give participants control and put them in the driving seat. Use appropriate tools to collect the evidence you need and include your clients and colleagues in the back room to add their observations. Make research fun, be inventive.Wednesday, 6 July 2011
