Good research is about asking more and better questions, and thinking critically about the answers. It’s something every member of your team can and should do, and which everyone can learn, quickly. And done well, it will save you time and money by reducing unknowns and creating a solid foundation to build the right thing, in the most effective way.

In Just Enough Research, co-founder of Mule Design Erika Hall distills her experience into a brief cookbook of research methods. Learn how to discover your competitive advantages, spot your own blind spots and biases, understand and harness your findings, and why you should never, ever hold a focus group. You’ll start doing good research faster than you can plan your next pitch.

    Comments about oreilly Just Enough Research:

    This is a book full of worldly wisdom and the subject matter just happens to be web design.
    The examples can be applied to just about any project which requires background analysis in other words "all of them".
    I loved this book because of its honesty - managing to be practical and grounded in the real, chaotic commercial world and not some idealised fantasy land.
    The series - a book apart - covers all aspects of web development and each book is written by a subject matter expert. Each book manages to be both authoritative and focussed so the subjects are definitely not dealt with superficially.
    The style reminded me of another book in the series "Design is a job" both of which managed to make me laugh out loud. It shouldn't then come as a surprise to know that Mike Monteiro and the author are business partners at Mule Design.
