When we prepare for our user research sessions, it’s easy to focus on the questions we should ask. But what about the ones we shouldn’t ask?
Our goal, of course, is to learn everything we can. We need to leverage the research time, to ensure we’re filling our brains with the information we’ll need to create great designs.
In today’s UIEtips, I talk about three questions I’ve learned not to ask in sessions. By avoiding these questions, we get to the information we need faster. Read the article Three Questions You Shouldn’t Ask During User Research.
Once you’ve learned what you need from the research, you’ll want to put it in a form that helps you speed through your design process. That’s exactly what scenarios help you do and, coincidentally, why we’ve asked Kim Goodwin to come to UI15. She’ll teach us how to make scenarios work. You can find out about Kim and the other great UI15 experts at UICONF.com.
