Watch this session from Agile On The Beach 2017 entitled ‘Be The Naturalist! Or: I’m Sorry, Your Mum Is Not a Valid Test Participant’ by Michael Rawling.
If you want understand how a Lion hunts, don’t go to the Zoo, go to the Savannah. User Research is one of the cornerstones of UX but the sheer volume of techniques around, combined with jargon and ‘silo’d’ teams often means the fundamental goal of uniting approaches like UX and Agile always seems beyond reach. How do you bring together (an understanding of) the people who use a system with those who actually create it.
