I am working in an organization that is focused on doing quick,
lightweight usability research, especially once the work has a good
foundation: bringing a design into a coffee shop, for example,
running 5 quick (15 minute) studies, making changes, showing 3 more
people the next day, etc.
In this model, I've seen things get revised and re-tested 10 or more
At the same time, there is a formal research organization that would
like to have all the results organized and indexed so they can find
them later. Ideally they'd like to have a standard report completed
for every round, but 10 reports is somewhat onerous.
What the researchers are currently doing for the team is posting
video with 3-5 key takeaways from every session on basecamp.
Does anyone have any experience with or suggestions for a solution
- doesn't burden what's supposed to be a very lightweight /
flexible testing process
- makes materials available an at least a minimally organized fashion
so people later can search for things like "filter testing", or
- keeps people not immediately involved appraised of progress
