Hi, all. I have a pretty good grasp of my tools for gathering data, and analyzing it, though I can always continue to learn. However, the study I’m currently conducting is taking longer than expected, because we have a lot of clients with varying schedules.
Here’s the question: I’m about half way done with performing field observations and semi-structured interviews. I already have hundreds of lines of raw data, flagged by type of event and area in our product. Management wants me to give a preview to the product managers now. My concern is that I will have a lot more info to synthesize into my findings and report. It will also take a lot of time to put together kind of an interim report. Do you ever share raw data (with participants de-identified) directly with product managers? any other suggestions on how to give them a “sneak peek” without mis-leading them to make decisions now, before hearing from the other half of the participants?
