There are many research frameworks and design processes, and new ones come up everyday. This post traces a common thread of problem and solution space across various design processes (and research frameworks).
How to use your user research questions and research frameworks to choose your research approach and methods?
My thoughts on Meena Kothandaraman's words, "Don't be led by the method, be led by your questions." This one is a foundational post on user research as it ties together (research) questions, research frameworks, user research methods, and examples. I used the Ncredible framework by twig+fish research practice to bring together all these. Many thanks to Meena for patiently walking me through her thoughts and their framework.
