Rapid UX Research for Lean and Agile Teams

Nielsen Norman Group

Speaker: Kelly Goto
CEO and Founder, gotoresearch

Today’s products and services must deliver immediate and real value to savvy customers with complex needs. Traditional demographics and market research use focus groups and surveys to uncover broad trends and patterns. While useful, this data does little to describe the why behind decision-making and retention. In order to get these insights, we need to conduct deeper, more meaningful research.

Rapid UX research cycles can help lean or agile teams conduct user research, pivot quickly, and iterate.
