About This Class

You’ve been working on a startup, design, or project and know that you need some customer validation to move on to the next step. If you’ve never planned and executed a research project before, it might feel like a big task. But it doesn’t have to be!

In this course, I will walk you through how to get started with customer research when you don’t know where to start. This course is for startup founders, designers, or product managers or members of any of these teams.

This class covers easy how-to steps to:

  1. Identify research questions
  2. Choose research methods
  3. Develop a research plan
  4. Conduct user interviews
  5. Analyze research findings

I've also included the raw footage of one of my user interviews. Watch to see how I moderate, and when I go on or off script!

Great class, lots of info and a very structured approach to research studies. It feels overwhelming but the lessons or there and just need to go through them again and start applying it to my own project. All in all, I think this is a high value class!
