How the Findings of Your UX Research Remain Valuable.

You might recognize this problem: you have invested time, money and energy in user research but throughout the course of the of the project, you discover that nobody remembers the valuable findings. Well, here are some suggestions on how to make your UX research results more memorable and sustainable for you and your team.

By Sydney Luca-Lion, UX research intern

If you’re in the business of making things for people, you may have already come across the terms “human-centered design” or “user-centered design”. This essentially means keeping the end user in mind at every step of the design and development process. To achieve this, you need to know your users, understand their goals, know how they think and act. Research helps you make better decisions, and better decisions lead to more successful products. If you are not convinced or don’t know where to start, this article(in German) might interest you.

If you have already conducted UX research and collected results, an important step in the user-centered project process has already been taken. But this does not mean that the research phase is over — it is now important to get the most out of your findings and to make them more useful for everyone on the team who’s involved in the project. Here are three things you should keep in mind:

1. See the wood for the trees

In UX research you are often confronted with a lot of data in many different forms, and some of the information is really useful and informative, and some less so. As you prepare to share your results with the team, you as an observer/researcher need to think carefully about how you can interpret and summarize the information — so that you end up presenting only what is worth sharing.

Valuable research results are those that are truly relevant to the project, and are accessible for the whole team. You and your team want to “see the wood for the trees”, which means not getting caught up in too many details and losing sight of the big picture. Try to stay focused on the scope of the project and don’t get caught up in insights that are not really relevant to the project. If you want memorable and valuable research results, you have to clarify to find the most meaningful points. Make an effort to be clear, comprehensive and straightforward so that the results of your research are understood and remembered by everyone involved in the project.

UX Design 101: User research — Everything you need to know to get started

What is this?

This session is part of a learning curriculum that I designed to incrementally skill up and empower a team of Designers and Researchers whose skillset and ways of working needed to evolve to keep up with changes in the way we think about and execute design.

Each session in the curriculum aims to simplify the complexities of human-centered interaction design using real-life examples from my own professional experience alongside established theory from industry experts.

The sessions are intentionally structured as short, achievable hands-on learning workshops that balance technique (hands-on, doing) with theory (readout, presentation).

**For more info about this curriculum, please read: **👇👇🏼👇🏾

_Why am I sharing this? _I have open-sourced this content to help others understand the fundamentals of human-centered interaction design and the multi-dimensional skillset needed to be successful in complex, collaborative environments.

What is the focus of this session?

Context — An understanding of how to approach the work

_Craft _— An understanding of how to do the work

_Communication _— An understanding of how to interact and collaborate

What are the goals of this session?

This session provides participants with an introduction to User Research and what it takes to get started — including an understanding of what user research is (and isn’t), where it fits into the product development process, when it should (and shouldn’t) be used, and an overview of common methodologies and tools.

Additionally, it provides a step-by-step framework and techniques for planning and executing effective user research activities, individually, or within an organization.

The participatory exercises in this session help attendees apply the concepts presented to a project they are working on (or have worked on in the past). Each exercise is incremental, building upon the previous one, to help participants understand how the principles of user research can be applied to the design challenges they face in their day-to-day.

Why is this topic important?

User insights are a fundamental element of human-centered design and help to facilitate impactful product design and development.

If a product or design solution is not rooted in an understanding of user needs and behavior, it does not account for how real people will interact with it, and its chance of delivering value and impact are relegated to luck.

User insights are fundamental to the product design and development process — they help us understand a problem, before we try to solve it.

What are the goals of this session?

This session provides participants with techniques for establishing _context_around their research by assessing the value and efficiency of answering a question via UX Research at the onset of a project, before they get started.

Additionally, the step-by-step framework and hands-on exercises in the session internalizethe value of _Context _by challenging each participant to answer a series of up-front questions that establish the _Who, What, Where, When, and Why _around a question they (or their team) feel could be best answered via UX Research.
