Tracks: ResearchOps Workshop
“Go!” “You owe it to yourself to check it out and consider how it (ResearchOps) can benefit your team.” “(This workshop is for you)...if you want to take user research in your organisation to the next level and if you want to grow your team.”You’ll walk out of this workshop with:
A clear understanding of all the pieces of the ResearchOps ecosystem (e.g. data security, training, recruitment, tools and infrastructure).
A manageable, custom roadmap that provides approaches for the short-, medium-, and long-term stages of building out a ResearchOps function.
A list of stakeholders you should expect to work with at each stage, and strategies for working with them.
An idea of the resources (time, financial and people) needed to deliver on your goals.
Heading up (or growing) a large team of researchers and want to better support them operationally.
Taking on a ResearchOps role and want to know where to start.
Pitching the need for a ResearchOps role to stakeholders.
Hiring a ResearchOps role into your organization and need to understand the function better.
