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.

Please take my anonymous, (mostly) multiple choice survey, whose results will be shared in an article about the state of research in the digital space: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/UXresearchIXDA

I’m aiming for a solid cross-section of respondents from different countries, job roles and industry tenures, so please spare me 5 minutes. Your participation is really appreciated.

Hi, would you like me to share this on Twitter? It's an interesting topic here in London. I'm always beating the drum for research, but it seems to be getting less common, not more.

Going one step further, there's a background debate happening about whether User Research is needed at all, only in certain circumstances, or in almost all circumstances. Needless to say, it evokes a lot of passionate response from folks in different camps.

I'm from Toronto, Canada.
I'll reply to your survey, which I think would be benefitial for all of us.
For a long time I've been complaining about the lack of solid stats and info. (Sean can attest to that.)

I personally have managed to find a way to excecute user testing on verious levels with a budget as small as $150/mth
