What is Atomic UX Research?

This article discusses Atomic UX Research, which is a method for organizing user research findings proposed by Daniel Pidcock. Some key points:

– Atomic UX Research breaks down research findings into discrete pieces – Experiments, Facts, Insights, and Recommendations. This allows findings to be searched, shared, and built upon more effectively. 

– Breaking down research atomically helps provide context and provenance for individual findings. It also allows multiple findings to support or refute each other, leading to more robust conclusions. 

– The method is intended to make research more usable across large organizations working on complex, long-term projects. It aims to facilitate evidence-based decision making.

– Pidcock has been practicing and refining Atomic Research for years. He discusses tools like mind maps and a dedicated app called Glean.ly that are useful for implementing the method.
