Effectiveness of mobile surveys

Hi,  we're looking at building out a rich mobile survey for a client.  Prior to presenting our POV, we'd like to bolster our case by referencing past mobile surveys.  

If anyone can point me in the right direction, when it comes to other Case Studies or successful, we would greatly appreciated.

Alternative jobs relevant to UX research and design

I was fairly intrigued by this little bit burried in a thread about the lack of employment opportunities for junior UX folk.

"Along with that, I would encourage you to broaden your search beyond pure UX roles. BA roles, product manager roles and other roles in technology, experience delivery, or an industry of interest can be a great platform of experience on which to biuild a career."

I'm curious if anybody can expand on this. A few specific questions to get the ball rolling:

The "magic place" between user research and design - tips & stories


There is a "magic place" that exists between user research
(speaking with your users & stakeholders), taking all that goodness
and designing the product with that in mind and speaking to it.

Often, user research can fall into a chasm because there is no up
front thought put into how it can translate into the design.

So what has worked well for you?

For example:
* How do you translate findings from user research into design?
* What do you plan for up front in your user research to help
communicate your design?
* What do you use to tell a story around and to the design?

Corporate Web Sites with Diverse Product Set

Does anyone have any favorite examples of corporations who do a good
job of presenting a broad and diverse product set on their
public-facing web site? I'm particularly interested in techniques to
get their audience to desired content, using innovations such as
showing bundled solutions by client segment or location (or both).

Research methods when you only have 2-3 hours or 2-3 days

So, yesterday I asked what your favorite methods for rapid research
were. Nobody responded. Does that mean that no one here is using
research to inform your designs? Are you guys all just winging it?

Do you just skip the research phase if your client tells you "we don't
have time."? I realize this group is geared more towards design or
organizing information, but how do you inform your decisions? Have we
gotten so complacent that we just go with our gut or based on our past

Come on people.
