I went to a convention a little bit ago and, aside from catching some con plague, I had a blast. However, there seemed to be a running theme with a lot of the UX professionals I talked to- dissatisfaction with how UX was integrated into the existing project process at their workplaces.
So I decided do a bit of research and have thus put together a short, 5 minute survey for UX designers, UX researchers, and UX developers. My hope is to gather data on what currently works for people and what doesn't, and how satisfied or disatisfied they actually are with various project methodologies.
I plan on making the results freely available for anyone to use, but with all references to specific individuals, workplaces, etc edited out.
If anyone is interested in helping out with this project, the survey can be found here. And feel free to pass it to other people if it's a subject that interests you.
