This week, Ines and our UX community discussed the following points,  which you can read through in the embedded Twitter Moment below.

  1. “We can’t afford user research.” How do you prove this statement wrong? What are your tips on doing usability research on a budget? Share your low-cost lab, tips for cheap recruitment, etc.
  2. How do you share insights gathered through user research to teams and stakeholders? Let’s talk about what works and what doesn’t.
  3. What is one thing you wish you had right now to do better work? What is your major pain point?
