How To Be More Efficient With Product Research

Time to do research is a precious commodity you shouldn't waste. After writing scripts, recruiting participants, and sifting for insights, you want to make informed decisions. However, sometimes projects wrap with results that breed confusion.

Positive responses to a feature or design don't always translate to user success or adoption. Even worse, after the time you spend on research, you might come away with neutral or non-committal results that don't help your team move forward.

There can be many reasons why your research efforts didn’t yield the results you want from them, and in this Master Class webinar, Design Researcher Boon Sheridan will take you through many of them. He’ll show how to avoid common mistakes in Product Research and how to get meaningful feedback that actually helps you make decisions.

You'll learn:

  • How to develop stages of product research and what types of insights will help you
  • What kinds of research methods can generate the insights you need
  • Whom to interview to make sure you get the most from user recruitment
  • What questions to ask to avoid false positives that mask unfavorable outcomes
  • When to course-correct during a research project if results don't meet your goals

If you work in product research, there's nothing worse than spending time and effort on a research project only to find that it doesn't answer vital questions. Inefficiencies and complications can arise anywhere between research planning and evaluation, but by being aware of common pitfalls, you can prevent them with timely adjustments.

Join this Master Class webinar and learn how to craft research that’s better prepared for success. Even if you cannot attend the webinar live, register to get access to a recording that you can watch anytime afterwards!

Continuous Product Discovery: The What and Why

Teresa Torres, Author and Product Discovery Coach

Conventionally, product discovery occurs at the start of building a new product, or as part of big, standalone projects. This is usually a way to validate the team’s assumptions and decisions, rather than a way to discover where product development ought to start from. Many of us are still stuck in a project world. We do research to kick off a project, we usability test right before we hand off to engineers, and our primary means for experimenting is a/b testing.

These methods are better than nothing, but the best product teams are shifting from a project mindset to a continuous mindset. Continuous product discovery aims to shift research into a customer-driven process, where product design teams work with customers to co-create their products. This involves breaking down user research into small, more frequent activities that product teams can undertake on a regular basis.

In this 1-hour Master Class webinar with Teresa Torres, you’ll learn:

  • The key differences between project-based discovery and continuous discovery
  • How to give your team a clear benchmark to aspire to
  • How to define a realistic frequency and scope for research
  • How to apply the outcomes of your research towards continuous improvements
  • Examples of how continuous discovery has helped real product teams

Continuous discovery is possible across various industries, in product teams of all sizes, and against many types of constraints. You’ll discover how to craft an approach that works best for your team—whether you want to start small or go big, you’ll unlock incredible advantages for your product when you practice continuous discovery.
