User Research Recruiting

Hi all,

I've been asked to do some remote testing and have to find some Irish small business owners/people doing the finances in small biz. We thought our remote testing tool would let us do the screening but it turns out it's UK only, which has let us in the lurch as we need results in the next week. Any advice as to either recruiters to use or places to find these people? (Or, *cough* if anyone fits the profile, please let me know….) We need five people (two of one type and three of another) so it's not a huge number but a number.

Changing role of user research in the UX design process?

During the Interactions 13 conference in Toronto, Paul Adams of Facebook advocated a radically different development cycle than the "ideal" user-centered one (qualitative user research first, then modelling and concept development, followed by prototyping, testing, and iteration).

How much design research do you really do?

Does your workplace walk the user-centred design talk?

 I am investigating the gap between the user research that digital designers and product owners would like to do versus what actually gets done on a typical design project.

Starting a user research 'repository'

I'm interested in helping other groups within my company make use of user research that my team does. Also, I'd like to be able to make use of (or at least be aware of) research or customer insights from other groups (sales or marketing, for example). I'm envisioning something online where people can post & search - maybe standardizing the entry in some way to keep some consistency in how data is entered. Has anyone tried something like this within your organization? I'm having a mental block on the best way to get started or pilot my idea, so I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks!

Need advice on an unorthodox methodology

So, I'm doing a brief contract for a rather large, multinational software company located near Seattle (ahem) and I've been asked to critique a methodology I've never come across before. Clearly it's been put together on the fly a la MacGyver invention, and I'm not entirely sure it'll get the results they think it will, so I figured I'd ask more knowledgeable folk. The methodology is something of a cross between a focus group (ugh) and a feature presentation. They're calling it a Concept Verification Test, and the sessions will go something like this:
