An interview with Jared Spool about getting stakeholder buy-in for UX research. The interview was conducted by Tomer Sharon, a Google UX researcher, for his book, "It's Our Research: Getting stakeholder buy-in for user experience research projects".

Jared M. Spool is the founder of User Interface Engineering, the largest usability research organization of its kind in the world. If you’ve ever seen Jared speak about usability, you know that he’s probably the most effective and knowledgeable communicator on the subject today. He’s been working in the field of usability and design since 1978, before the term "usability" was ever associated with computers.

Jared spends his time working with the research teams at the company, helps clients understand how to solve their design problems, explains to reporters and industry analysts what the current state of design is all about, and is a top-rated speaker at more than 20 conferences every year. He is also the conference chair and keynote speaker at the annual UIE Conference and Web App Masters Tour, is on the faculty of the Tufts University Gordon Institute, and manages to squeeze in a fair amount of writing time. He is author of the books, Web Site Usability: A Designer’s Guide and Web Anatomy: Interaction Design Frameworks that Work (with Robert Hoekman).
