Atomic Research: Foundations, Concepts, and Tools

User research is fundamentally changing. In a time when executives and other business leaders have trouble seeing people, can’t make a direct connection between their customers’ experience and business performance, and can’t get clear answers to questions such as, “What do we know about x?”, then things must take a different direction. Atomic Research is an approach to managing research knowledge that redefines the atomic unit of a research insight. Instead of reports, slide decks, and dashboards, the new atomic unit of a research insight is a nugget. During this talk, Tomer will introduce the approach, walk through examples for using it, and discuss available tools.
