As a UX practitioner, you know the steps to take, the money to spend, and the time to allocate to each research project. But often times your clients don't understand the importance of the research, and the economy can always factor into the budget and timeframe. Where as the perfect UX research project may take months, sometimes you are only given weeks. The problem: how do you manage a successful, accurate project given all those restrictions?
Guerrilla Research Methods provides a number of low-cost, powerful, and reliable research methods to help you solve any problem that arises in time- or budget-sensitive projects. It aids in making informed design decisions when projects have time and budget restrictions.
