*InterVu: Todd Zaki Warfel's Research Framework
*

Most design projects have some kind of research involved. Maybe your doing
stakeholder interviews, competitive analysis, web log analysis, or even
usability testing.

How do you keep track of it all? What do you do with the findings? How do
you prioritize them?

I've tried a number of different tools and techniques over the years and
none of them gave me what I needed — the ability to keep track of my
findings, prioritize them, and the ability to quickly find an artifact that
produced the finding or solved it. When no solution was fitting my needs, I
did what any other entrepreneur would — I made my own.

I'm going to show you a research framework that makes capturing and
analyzing your data faster, easier, and more valuable. See how you can add
traceability to your findings and prioritize them based on significance to
the customer, business value, and technical feasibility.
