Hi, I’m writing my master thesis and I’m currently structuring my methods section. From a previous pilot study, I have developed an information visualization tool, a hi-fi prototype in other words. I want to further develop this prototype based on findings (user requirements and needs) from some type of user study. But I can’t seem to find an appropriate UX approach for my work.
Alot of UX research methods/processes are based on the notion of identifying problems/needs of users to ideate on, in most cases the said users have previous experience of a software or product.
However, in my user study, I mean to introduce a totally new scenario/situation for the participant (the user). The user group is department managers within a certain organization.The new scenario would imply new responsibilities/tasks in their current work, which they have no previous experience of. This prototype would serve as an example of a solution to address the proposed scenario. I want to gain insights based on this prototype but I’m not sure how to proceed.
Would mean the world to me if someone could nudge me in the right direction. Thank you!
