UX Field Research Basics

With the speed at which technology is changing, field research offers understanding into how products can impact the lives of your customers. Regardless if it’s your first or hundredth time, conducting field research is a daunting task. Planning and conducting field research is a juggling act between preparation, interview skills, and synthesis. In this talk, I’ll share some of the key principles involved in any researcher’s toolkit and explore lessons learned from the three main stages of conducting field studies:

  • Stage 1: Planning and prep — Gathering good research data starts with proper planning. This includes everything from writing interview questions and developing an interview guide to recruiting participants and determining logistics.
  • Stage 2: Out in the field — Research can drain you both physically and mentally. David introduce some tricks to keep your mind sharp, allowing you to give each session your focus.
  • Stage 3: Finding the patterns — The data resulting from field research grows quickly. David outline a few techniques for making the most out of limited time and managing mountains of information.
