A study method for the inmates of Gwanaksan Mountain Climbing

Gwanaksan Mountain Climbing and Technology Acceptance Cycle ModelAmong the people who live near Mt. Gwanak, I thought that I was a late prisoner or a late prisoner.

As I came down from the mountain, I thought, what should I do to find out if I am a late adopter of Gwanaksan mountain climbing?

Shall we ask this person (me ^^)?

"Are you a late adopter? Or are you an early adopter?"

흠, How far will you trust your users? I've been thinking about The truth of user needs is that asking users directly and answering them is not all about user needs.

Asking directly may be the most effective method, but in many cases it may also be the worst way to gather users' needs or understand a phenomenon.

If a user can say that he or she is a perceptual recipient, research is easy. But this rarely happens.

Shall we go to town and do a survey? Ah, yes, but how do you make a sentence? What should I ask? What are some of the better known frameworks?

Shall we distinguish them by attitudes such as satisfaction that market researchers often use?

Do you know if you know what elements are involved in climbing Mt. Gwanak? What's new is that you can't create a structured questionnaire itself.

Shall we get people together and do something like a conference? That seems like a good way too. Since we don't know the group where we can see the difference between groups, we gather people together and ask a question. You can even focus groups when you don't know anything. Simply put. This method isn't bad, but it requires a lot of skill for the researcher. A lot of people say focus groups are bad, but moderating them properly is difficult.

Although I tell my team members every day, the moderating of the usability test is so leisurely that it makes me yawn in the middle, but the moderating in the focus group really can't relax me every moment.

So, what about the cultural anthropological method that says observation is important in the field of user research these days?

Since this person has lived for 10 years, shall we live together in that town for just one year?

you can count me

Or maybe just walk around the area every day, or sit nearby and watch the people? Then, if you're bored, how about interviewing people?

This method seems to be fine.

Interviews are about asking people, but the skill must be different.

It is not just an in-depth interview conducted in market research, but an oral life-history interview called a cultural anthropological method, and you will have to take action and describe the behavior.

And I think I'll have to go to the field, not the lab or conference room, so I can understand the situation. Since you are not using tools such as computers or mobile phones, it seems that observation will require more time. As in the case of <Qualitative Research Methodology for Culture and History Research>, you will have to interview the people of the neighborhood, walk around the village and around Gwanaksan Mountain, and sit still and observe people. And you'll find causation and correlation, find out what's important, and build a framework.

In the end, I also chose the method of field interview + field observation, which many people talk about as if it is a new method. Of course, the interview method or observation method should have a structured framework for life rather than asking questions in a single time period.

How to do an interview and the framework of questions you'll never learn from a graduate-level credential. Because graduate school is a place that nurtures scientists, it does not nurture practitioners, and there is no practical knowledge. Research skills, like interview skills, are not externally procedural enough to be passed from word to mouth even in market research companies or user research agencies. It doesn't seem like a simple enough issue to be a discussion of craft or skill.


I tried to play alone by throwing a topic and thinking of a solution
