Collaborative Research: Leveraging the Power of Your Team and Users

Collaborative research is a powerful way of making the most of your team’s strengths and your users’ feedback, but successful collaboration is more nuanced than involving team members early on in the process. While collaboration across UX, PM and Dev has the potential for high product success, it’s also higher in team effort; so learning how to optimise those efforts is key to seeing an impact in your product. Bébhínn will share her team’s journey to making remote collaborative research work for them, along with practical and transferable tips on how to facilitate collaborative research in your organization.
