Conference presented at the UX Strat Europe 2016 conference in Amsterdam by Dr. Carine Lallemand (University of Luxembourg).
While conducting UX research, we make several conclusions that will in turn provide the foundation for our UX strategy. But what if these inferences happen to be wrong, based on invalid findings and false beliefs? How critically would this impact your organization and projects? How can you safeguard a UX strategy by ensuring the quality of research conclusions?
There might be numerous threats to validity in UX research, some of which might depend on the method used or the way it is used. A method is only a guide to action that needs to be configured, adapted, and complemented to match specific project requirements. To be successful, it is essential to ensure validity in strategic UX research methods. Failing to do so is taking the risk to base strategic decisions on false beliefs. In this talk, we will therefore see how to tackle validity issues and make the most out of UX research to stand out from the crowd by delivering value and differentiation. Through the presentation of validated cutting edge UX methods and business cases, you will be able to spot opportunities for improvement in your UX strategy!
