There are more researchers focused on users, customers, and products than ever before, and those researchers’ needs are changing. Rosenfeld Media has already interacted with researchers through the Advancing Research community, which we curate, but wanted to learn more about who they are, where they work, and how they learn. And—as a conference-production company—we wanted to know what researchers seek from conference experiences.
In this talk, Gregg Bernstein, senior director of user research at Vox Media (Vox, The Verge, Eater, and more), shares how to find the information that leads to more informed decisions, how to build data-sharing relationships, and how to put it all together in service of your organization.
Over 3 decades of software design and development, we have seen the creation and proliferation of tools that help our teams be great at the solution space – diagramming, sketching, prototyping, tracking, measuring. How might we make ourselves better at working in the problem space? In this videoconference, we’ll brainstorm and explore the topic, and maybe even inspire someone to build that perfect tool.
