Reduct.Video was thrilled to host our second Research, Camera, Action! focused on democratizing UX research. We were honored to offer a space where the research community could come together and discuss this controversial yet important topic. There was much to discuss, including:
This Research, Camera, Action! was thoroughly interactive and featured a full evening of in-depth talks:
To end our night, Reduct CEO Prabhas Pokharel led the audience in a rapid-synthesis of the night’s event! We shared out these results shortly after the event and have full summaries of each talk below. For access to our full recordings, message us at email@example.com and stay tuned for our next event.
Summary: As researchers we juggle the roles of expert and facilitator. We frequently have to lead the way in research strategy while supporting our teammates in their own research execution. This can result in conflict of ownership – when everyone is performing research, who owns it? In this talk I will share my experiences in facilitating work with non-UXR stakeholders while still maintaining the position of domain expert.
Summary: Empowering non-researchers to do their own research: wave of the future, or descent into madness? We clear up some commonly held myths about research democratization and discuss the realities and surprises of implementing this kind of program at scale.
Summary: So your product team wants to talk to your customer. Awesome. But how do you help them see the difference between a conversation and a research interview? We’ll share how we structured our user research training program and what we learned in the process.
Summary: Design and user research can be mysterious, complex and intimidating – even to practitioners. It’s hard to learn the “art” of the practice, challenging to break into the field, and, curiously, few resources are organized with how most people think about the topic.
Please join us to preview products that aspire to close these gaps and discuss how they can be improved upon.

Summary: As researchers, we are always creating takeaways: insights and artifacts that synthesize huge volumes of information. In this interactive session, we will quickly synthesize the talks we just heard into short video takeaways. To go box not included.
