How To Be More Efficient With Product Research: Live Master Class

You’ve carefully planned your research activities, crafted your interview scripts, recruited participants and executed your research plan. As you sift through all your research data, you can almost feel your manager (or client) breathing down your neck — you better have some “aha”-inducing insights and be able to justify all the hours spent on research.

If you work in product research, there’s nothing worse than spending time and effort on a research project only to find that it doesn’t answer vital questions. You want to make informed decisions. However, sometimes research projects wrap with results that breed confusion. Positive responses to a feature or design don’t always translate to user success or adoption. Even worse, after the time you spend on research, you might come away with neutral or non-committal results that don’t help your team move forward.

Inefficiencies and complications can arise anywhere between research planning and evaluation, but by being aware of common pitfalls, you can prevent them with timely adjustments.

To help you understand the reasons why your research efforts didn’t yield the results you want from them, and how you can conduct more efficient Product Research, the Interaction Design Foundation is hosting a Live Master Class with Design Researcher Boon Sheridan. Join us on Wednesday, 26 May 2021 at 4PM UTC to learn how to avoid common mistakes in Product Research and how to get meaningful feedback that actually helps you make decisions.
