There are two main reasons why project managers come to me for help with their research: either they are short of time, or expertise, or sometimes both.
Without enough time and expertise it’s all too easy to get sucked into problems you could probably do without.
How much time and expertise do you have available?
Whether you need a few hours advice on your research plan, hands-on help to get feedback from users, or a full, independent study, take a few moments to estimate how much time and expertise you and your people have available. Use the following scales to gauge roughly where you stand with time and expertise.
If you’re short of time or expertise or unsure what you have available, and you decide to go it alone, your study is likely to go adrift; if it gets off the ground at all.
