One of my sketches (zoom in) -> pointers for doing user research: gathering evidence to better understand user interaction. You can view/zoom in on a close-up of the sketch

Briefly, as shown in detail (with examples) in my sketch when researching for designing the User Experience concentrate on these areas:

  1. Who are the Users?
  2. Ascertain the Research Goals
  3. Research Methodology
  4. Recruitment
  5. Data Collection
  6. Analysis
  7. Outcomes

Why write hundreds of words to explain something when you can explain it visually as a drawing, showing how each area interlinks 🙂
