  4. 4. “run a really good usability study”
  5. 5. “talking to customers” “doing research” “learning a lot”

  10. 10. Impact starts with intent: Our job is to figure out what the team needs to learn to push the work forward. Our language & mindset needs to be focused on impact: how will learning [this kind of thing] help make decisions or change how we act? @stonecrops_ davesresearch.com/resources Considering Research User Research London 2019
  11. 11. 2. We work with “experience,” of the messy human variety @stonecrops_ davesresearch.com/resources Considering Research User Research London 2019
  12. 12. Page: The Measure of Man and Woman: Human Factors in Design
  13. 13. We work with experiences: When people ‘do activities’ through the systems, products, and services we offer, a “user experience” happens. Consider: what types of data must we gather to understand, support, and improve these experiences? @stonecrops_ davesresearch.com/resources Considering Research User Research London 2019
  14. 14. 3. Experience is a complex, layered, dynamic system @stonecrops_ davesresearch.com/resources Considering Research User Research London 2019
  15. 15. mutually co-developing, subjective, ephemeral
  16. 16. Intent Action Emotion & Expectation Culture & Context
  17. 17. What actually happens in the world? Why?
  18. 18. Action
  19. 19. How does/ will it work?
  20. 20. How do/will they act?
  21. 21. • Usability testing • Prototype testing • Field observations • Experience sampling • User interviewing
  22. 22. Intent
  23. 23. What do our systems enable?
  24. 24. What are they trying to achieve?
  25. 25. • Persona development • Card sorting / tree testing • Design synthesis • JTBDs • Conceptual modeling • User interviewing
  26. 26. Culture & Context
  27. 27. How does it function? What are we trying to do here?
  28. 28. What do they need to succeed? What is their context?
  29. 29. • Contextual inquiry • Field study / ethnography • Product strategy • Cultural probes / diary • User interviewing

  33. 33. • Concept testing • Mental models • Conceptual models • Alignment workshops • Product/design vision
  34. 34. Experience is a complex, dynamic system: Experience arises from peoples’ experiences of interaction. A map of this terrain will allow us to be effective: to move forward with intention and awareness.
  35. 35. 4. The people who produce experiences (all of us) lose sight of reality @stonecrops_ davesresearch.com/resources Considering Research User Research London 2019

  44. 44. @stonecrops_ davesresearch.com/resources Considering Research User Research London 2019
  45. 45. A need for user research: The complexity of our experience-systems increases—at an increasing rate. Creating ‘good’ experiences is a huge effort: Eng, PM, UX are not primarily oriented to generate [useful] knowledge. We have the tools and mindset to produce actionable insight about the complex & reality of human experience. @stonecrops_ davesresearch.com/resources Considering Research User Research London 2019
  46. 46. 5. Our process is designed to help our teams change how they think: to see reality @stonecrops_ davesresearch.com/resources Considering Research User Research London 2019

  53. 53. What research does: We understand where the system is out of balance, or our picture doesn’t match reality. We ensure teams are aligned on useful questions that frame those mismatches. We Ask questions that, when answered, will change how we think & what we produce. @stonecrops_ davesresearch.com/resources Considering Research User Research London 2019

  93. 93. Manager-ing a research team: You’re a servant with two masters: the needs of the larger org, and the needs of your team members. Aligning these incentives is crucial. Consider impact as you choose which work to take on: the most powerful levers are ultimately the furthest from the core of experience. @stonecrops_ davesresearch.com/resources Considering Research User Research London 2019
  94. 94. 10. Making the work work is how you work with the people you work with @stonecrops_ davesresearch.com/resources Considering Research User Research London 2019
  95. 95. Building and growing impactful research in any organization requires people to change how they think and how they act. @stonecrops_ davesresearch.com/resources Considering Research User Research London 2019
  96. 96. Researchers: • Be clear about what you’re all really trying to do, and how your work will push that forward. • Understand the experience, and understand your team’s incentives. Ask and answer meaningful and timely questions. • Load your team’s mind with useful and provocative [evidence/models/stories] of experience that will drive action. @stonecrops_ davesresearch.com/resources Considering Research User Research London 2019
  97. 97. Managers: • Create the environment where the work will succeed. • [org] understand and plant in the garden, • [team] make sure the vines are growing well, • [projects] keep the grapes ripe, • [self] and always be sampling the wine. • Recognize what’s important—higher leverage is further from the core of experience. Do, delegate, defer, drop. @stonecrops_ davesresearch.com/resources Considering Research User Research London 2019
  98. 98. Zoom out. See the larger picture of how the organization produces the experience. Choose your efforts with intention, and try to make them work with and for your team. If (and when) you don’t succeed, you have the most important tools to move forward: good intentions and the ability to learn. @stonecrops_ davesresearch.com/resources Considering Research User Research London 2019
