Topic: Rapid UX Research Cycles

Customers are getting smarter while their behaviors are becoming more complex. Companies today are now faced with a very harsh reality: their products and services must deliver immediate and real value. Creating real value requires companies to satisfy customer needs at a deeper, more meaningful level. Traditional demographics and market research use focus groups and surveys to uncover broad trends and patterns. While useful, this data does little to understand the why behind decision-making and retention. In order to get these insights, we need to talk to real people.

Rapid UX research cycles allow critical business decisions to be addressed in weeks rather than months. Although timing is streamlined, quality and rigor are maintained. Formal output takes the form of mental models, Jobs-to-be-done output, journey maps and behavioral personas — based on the need. Rapid UX Research Cycles can help teams already moving in a lean or agile format get the information they need to pivot quickly with an eye for “right sized rigor” and immediately apply outcomes.
