The Ultimate

UX Research Planning System

Everything you need to quickly plan successful user research projects like a pro.

What if your UX research projects were successful, organized, and on-time every time?

Do any of these sound familiar?

You're Not Alone!

Are you not sure how to plan a professional UX research project?

Do you struggle with crafting the right research goals and meeting them?

Is planning and managing UX research projects overwhelming or taking up too much of your time?

Are you tired of team members missing deadlines, veering off plan, or asking for information over and over again?

Are you totally new to UX research and don't know what's involved?

Could you use a planning framework for your research operations that is simple to set up and use?

The Good News?

There is a better way!

Unfortunately, most UX research projects just don’t go as well they should.

It’s not your fault, but most teams weren’t shown how important good research plans are for insightful and smooth UX research projects.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

There is a reliable, solid, simple framework for UX research planning that works.

Great UX research involves getting what you need from stakeholders, choosing the right participants, crafting tangible research goals and other important details.

In this course and toolkit, you'll learn what to include (and what not to) in your research plan. I'll walk you step by step through it!

This is a system that can (and should!) be used with every UX research study to help make them more successful, more enjoyable, and more impactful.

The best part is, anyone can learn to do this quickly and use the methods and tools provided to get awesome results.

No special software or products needed!

I’m sharing my best tips and processes based on 15 years of experience, so take advantage of it!

"As someone who's role has become increasingly UX focused this year, and the requirement for in-house UX testing has become greater, the Usability DIY course has been so helpful in giving me all the practical tips and guidance in planning a user research project. I still refer to the process now to make sure I haven't missed anything when I'm writing a proposal. Alexis explains everything so clearly and takes you through the course content in a logical step by step process giving you all that you need to put the learning into practice very quickly."
