User observation

Study users' behaviours and motives, uncovering valuable insights to inform your product development, enhance user experiences, and drive customer-centricity.

You can only deliver effective solutions if you know who your users are, how they behave and what they want. User observation lets you go beyond surface-level data and delve into your target audience’s core motivations and experiences.


How does the user observation process work?

At Leap Forward, we employ a hands-on, four-step approach to user observation:

  1. Define and recruit the right people: We use persona research and a thorough, inclusive recruitment process to ensure we have the right people in front of us in the right setting.
  2. We make time for qualitative user research: Through in-person or remote sessions, we carefully observe users interacting with your products or services. Immersing ourselves in your customers’ environment allows us to capture qualitative data through direct observation, shadowing, note-taking, and audio-visual recordings.

  3. We analyse this data to uncover hidden insights: By actively observing users, we can identify patterns, pain points, and things they’re happy with. We then set to work analysing this data. Our analysis will give you a deep understanding of your customers’ experiences and what you could improve moving forward.

  4. We help you implement these learnings: We present our insights to the board, formulated as actionable advice and next steps. We tell a captivating story about what your users need, why, and how you can provide it to them.
