Bookmark: How to get the most value out of remote user research (without breaking the bank)

Bookmarked:

From my first-hand experience, this lightweight research process described by Rian Van Der Merwe is incredibly efficient. In the article it is summarized as chosing:

  • The RITE testing method (Rapid Iterative Testing and Evaluation)
  • The right remote usability testing tools
  • The right fidelity
  • The right people to talk to
  • The right way to analyze and communicate results
  • The right way to put it all together

Being able to run a large-scale, representative, extensive UX study is an inspiring undertaking. But so is a rapid iterative process like RITE that naturally includes user research in the product development process: verifying one’s work as you go takes the guesswork out of a project and provides valuable information to identify issues and opportunities.

As the author states, each form of research process has a context where it fits best – and this is a highly suitable one for small teams, with small products and small budgets.
