Workshop: Choosing the Right Research Methods For Your Project

with Dan Berlin, Experience Research Director, Mad*Pow

and Susan Mercer, Senior Experience Researcher, Mad*Pow


Workshop Overview

It's very easy for User Experience researchers to get stuck in the rut of using your favorite research methods for gathering information and getting user feedback. But, are you really gathering the best information that you can? Or are there other methods that are better suited for your project's specific needs?

Or, if youre just starting out how do you know whether you should conduct interviews, run a survey or a card sort, or something different all together?

Dont stress well walk you through the process of clarifying your research goals to make sure that you focus on the right problems. Then well discuss several methods for initial information gathering ethnography, interviews, surveys, diary studies, collaging, card-sorting, and focus groups, along with their strengths and weaknesses and what situations they are best suited for. Youll work with other participants on several exercises along the way. Well wrap up the day with a structured method to help you select the best methods and a final, overarching exercise.

What will you take away from our workshop?

This workshop will discuss several research methods and provide you with practical tips on how to choose which methods are best in which situations. Youll increase the number of research methods in your toolkit, and gain hands-on experience with different aspects of running a research study through individual and group exercises throughout the tutorial.

Level of experience: Beginner / Intermediate

Who are the Workshop Leaders?

Both Dan Berlin and Susan Mercer have MS degrees in Human Factors in Information Design from Bentley University. They each also have over five years experience in conducting user research, using a diverse set of research methods from contextual inquiry to ethnography to collaging across industries.

After seven years of providing technical support for hard-to-use interfaces,Dan found his User Experience calling after participating in a usability study. He enrolled in the MBA+MS in Human Factors in Information Design program at Bentley University and then spent two years conducting usability and neuromarketing research studies for an interactive agency.

As a Research Director for Mad*Pow, Dan combines his experience and education (including a BA in Psychology from Brandeis University) to conduct both traditional and new research techniques. Dan is also Adjunct Faculty for Kent State Universitys online Masters in UX Design program.

After starting a career in geophysics, Susan discovered that she enjoyed visually communicating her data more than she did the science. She has 20 years of experience in user experience, working both as a consultant and in-house designer and researcher. She has worked in a variety of fields, including healthcare, financial services, education, and business services. She has several years of experience in conducting user research, using a diverse set of research methods from contextual inquiry to ethnography to collaging across industries.

WHAT IS MORE POWERFULA KISS OR A CRIME?

Celebrity Series Presents: Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock
Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock stunned jazz audiences in 1978 when, in the midst of jazz-rocks enormous popularity, they toured as an acoustic piano duet. That spirited tour produced two classic albums: Corea Hancock and An Evening with Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock: In Concert. Corea and Hancock have never again recorded together as a duet. The Celebrity Series checks in on this historic collaboration between two master musicians. "[Chick Corea is] a luminary, ebullient and eternally youthful." The New York Times "The sheer rhythmic dynamism, relentless invention and all-over-the-keyboard virtuosity of his performance suggested, in fact, that [Herbie Hancock] may be entering a new period of creativity and rejuvenation." Chicago Tribune

  • Operational efficiency


The tiered support model of the past 35 years is giving way to a new structure and process: a better way to align people with work.

Intelligent swarming is a collaboration-based model that seeks to get the person, or people, most likely to be able to solve an issue working on that issue on the first touch.

The benefits of collaboration are well understood by support staff; they do it quite naturally. And, they often collaborate in spite of the traditional tiered support model and escalation processes that we have imposed on them. What if we created processes and structures that enabled collaboration? Early adopters of swarming are reporting compelling benefits including faster skills development, improved employee morale, and increased customer satisfaction.

Intelligent Swarming is not a new topic for the Consortium for Service Innovation. But in the past few years, a handful of member companies have implemented the swarming concepts, albeit in very different ways, but all with great success.

This one-day Intelligent Swarming Insights workshop provides:

  • An explanation of the principles
  • A summary of case studies, benefits and lessons learned from the early adopters
  • Details on the qualification criteria: swarming is not for everybody
  • Insight to the critical key enablers
  • 7 scenarios to consider in designing the process
  • Tool functionality and integration requirements
