Does your organization talk to users before starting development on a project?

At An Event Apart Chicago this week, there were many sessions that made mention of talking to users, getting users involved at the beginning of a project, and how it helps ensure that we, as developers, are solving the right problems. So my questions to you are: Does your organization do user research at the start a project? What do you do to get the information you need?

I'm not sure about a lot of where I work but I know our team doesn't necessarily talk to users before starting a product because generally products are started after talking to users about other things. In other words products aren't started without users already having asked for it.

That’s awesome! So before any planning ever starts, you know exactly how it’ll help them.

Thanks, Kurt!
