  16. 16. Jenny | The Working Mom About Jenny Jenny is a budget and health-conscious shopper. She cares about what her family eats. She is responsible for a great deal of her family's grocery shopping and is also the one to organize activities for the children. Jenny often shops after work and goes to the store on her way home. She shops a few times a week. Jenny loves spending time outdoors and has a very active family. She kayaks, runs and often does yoga with her friends. As part of her practice and focus on health, she has aspires to be a better cook and maintains a host of Pinterest boards focused on healthier eating. Despite being more expensive, she'll spend more for Organic, Non-GMO and cage free items. How Jenny interacts with Family Fare Supermarkets Jenny shops at several different stores depending on what her family's needs are that week. She uses Family Fare only because its convenient. The size allows her to get in and out quickly and she knows where things are. She wishes there were more products she could trust. When she does use the store, she uses digital coupons, reads labels and only shops the perimeter because she buys center store items elsewhere. She is price aware and spends $25-30 when she visits the store. She often buys organic and free range items and prefers seafood that's sustainable and wild caught. She likes artisan breads and fresh items for her family. She typically doesn't use our pharmacy and prefers using Costco for gasoline because she can get it cheaper than Quick Stop. She uses our yes Card and digital coupons, but doesn't open e-mails. Before hitting the store, Jenny modifies her list and may or may not have knowledge of what's on sale. She isn't adverse to private brands, but leans towards organic options. She is willing to spend a little more to offer better health options for her family. Jenny's Shopping Mix Other stores Jenny includes in her weekly shopping trip include: Meijer, Target, Trader Joe's, farmers markets and Costco. She may not stop at Family Fare every week. Because she enjoys shopping at the Farmer's Market and Target she leans in that direction. There isn't anything that inspires her to make an extra effort to come tot the store. Jenny's Needs: Jenny needs to have her decisions to do better things for her family validated. She wants experiences from stores that allow her to explore her desire to be healthier and be a better cook, while staying on a reasonable budget. "Grocery shopping is really time consuming.

She uses Skype to stay connected with friends and family through video chat. Her favorite social networks are Instagram and Pinterest but she uses Facebook to stay in touch with old classmates and share photos of her children. Jenny follows blogs, and considers herself to be a "foodie" even though she doesn't feel like she's the world's best cook just yet. She tries new things in the kitchen often. She and her husband use Amazon Prime and are comfortable making purchases both large and small via the Internet. She has even ordered several things using her phone. Her family ships things they like directly to the house and she is very comfortable using services that offer great convenience and save them time (e.g. Uber, Amazon, Shutterfly, online reservations).

  25. 25. RESEARCH METHODOLGY SpartanNash Copyright 2015 | Private and Confidential
  26. 26. CONTEXTUAL INQUIRY Contextual inquiry is a structured form of interviewing that allows the research team to: ‣  Gather interview data ‣  Understand ethnographic insights ‣  Capture physical behaviors and work patterns The data gathered helps inform everything from personas, to product design, to workflow/ workplace modification, to content strategy. SpartanNash Copyright 2015 | Private and Confidential 28
  27. 27. CONTEXTUAL INQUIRY: WHAT IT IS User Interview (Influenced by Designer/Strategist) Contextual Inquiry (Influenced by designer, user and strategist) Observation (Influenced by end user) SpartanNash Copyright 2015 | Private and Confidential 29
  28. 28. CONDUCTING INTERVIEWS: NEEDS Keys to a successful interview are: ‣  An interviewer for formal questioning ‣  An observer for recording physical behaviors, workflow models and note taking ‣  Trust between interviewer and subject The interview is about building a relationship. Even if we feel like we have the right answers, our effort should focus on developing a shared interpretation of an activity or work. SpartanNash Copyright 2015 | Private and Confidential 30
  29. 29. CONDUCTING INTERVIEWS: GOALS Key outputs of contextual inquiry should be: ‣  Watching and probing to observe users as they work and inquire to understand motivations and strategies ‣  Learn from the user perspective, even you feel like you know the “answers” ‣  Look for gaps in what a user is leaving out and ask questions to fill them ‣  Gather both concrete and abstract data to have them focus on actual artifacts and actions SpartanNash Copyright 2015 | Private and Confidential 31
  30. 30. THE INTERVIEWER ROLE In traditional user interviews, the interviewer asks users a series of questions that relate to the business objectives or research goals. In contextual inquiry, interviewers must: ‣  Be a facilitator of conversation AND of behavior ‣  Make the participant feel like an expert, in whatever they’re doing ‣  Ensure that the interview environment is contextually relevant to the research or tasks to be addressed ‣  Ensure the participant articulates the processes and methods for work as he/she is doing it Photo:  Columbia  Pictures     SpartanNash Copyright 2015 | Private and Confidential 32
  31. 31. THE OBSERVER ROLE The  observers  role  in  contextual  inquiry  is  to  do  just   that…  observe.  The  goal  of  having  an  observer  on   hand  is  to   ‣  Document  physical  behaviors   ‣  Understand  how  the  environment  (context)  affects   the  par,cipants  ability  to  complete  a  task  or   perform  work   ‣  Note  paPerns  that  emerge  from  one  interview  to   the  next   ‣  Take  photographs  or  video        SpartanNash Copyright 2015 | Private and Confidential 33
  32. 32. THE PARTICIPANT ROLE Participants in contextual inquiry research are equally as responsible for the outcome as the interviewer and observers. Participants are responsible for: ‣  Doing and answering ‣  Showing the observer and interviewer complete tasks ‣  Avoiding assuming that the interviewers will understand “why” something is being done ‣  Talk to the researchers level of understanding (avoid jargon) 34   Photo  -­‐  DG  EMPL:  hPps://flic.kr/p/7yh1oF     SpartanNash Copyright 2015 | Private and Confidential 34
  33. 33. CONDUCTING THE INQUIRY The most important thing to remember when doing contextual inquiry is to avoid things like conference rooms, Skype or usability centers. Participants must be in their own environment (home, office, workspace, etc.) ‣  I typically send out an email to participants to outline goals, rules of engagement and profess my ignorance ‣  On arrival, note ambient factors (lighting, temperature, time of day, layouts of things, observable culture, artifacts present, etc.) ‣  Begin the session with a short questionnaire 35   Photo  -­‐  Mark  Hunter:    hPps://flic.kr/p/aZdRXi   SpartanNash Copyright 2015 | Private and Confidential 35
  34. 34. CONDUCTING THE INQUIRY - CONTINUED ‣  After your short questionnaire, note that you’ll be doing something completely different and set them to work ‣  Ask questions that arise during the completion of task, keep the interview free flowing and adjust as needed ‣  Ask specific questions relating to their thought process, task, and ensure that they feel like their the expert ‣  Work up to an hour, be ready to move locations if necessary (e.g. workstation change or an environmental stimuli requirement) 36   Photo  -­‐  Jeff  Swaim:  hPps://flic.kr/p/e5fATs   SpartanNash Copyright 2015 | Private and Confidential 36
  35. 35. CONDUCTING THE INQUIRY - CONTINUED ‣  Document, document, document ‣  Photograph, photograph, photograph ‣  Ask, ask, ask ‣  Ask again ‣  Spend two hours on analysis for every one hour of inquiry 37   Photo  -­‐  Marco  Arment:  hPps://flic.kr/p/411AnZ   SpartanNash Copyright 2015 | Private and Confidential 37
  36. 36. PREPARING FOR INTERPRETATION During your interview be sure to: ‣  Avoid lots of open ended questions that provide less chance for interpretation ‣  Strike a balance between probing for what you sense as a pattern and allowing the participant to work freely ‣  Cycle between observing, probing and interpreting ‣  Be flexible but be consistent in the type of person you are so that trust will develop 38   Photo  -­‐  Hans  Splinter:  hPps://flic.kr/p/5tWKPt   SpartanNash Copyright 2015 | Private and Confidential 38
  37. 37. Annette | The Busy Head of the Household About Annette Annette is fully aware of her family's needs, budget and preferences. She takes great pride in knowing what everyone in the house needs, likes and desires. She often plans activities for the family and is typically the the one who cooks, cleans and shops for the family on a weekly basis. Because she works and cares for her children, Annette is often pressed for time and typically shops at a few stores once a week, on Saturdays or Sundays.

Annette has very little time to herself and often looks to the internet, magazines or television for inspiration.

She likes shopping at Family Fare because it's convenient, fast and the employees are friendly. She shops the entire store and looks for deals when they're available. She tends to spend the bulk of her visit in fresh areas because she likes that our stores offer fresh meat and that our produce is fresh. She spends an average of $66 or a little more each week.

While she always makes a stop at Family Fare, she will chase a deal when one is good enough and may purchase items she normally gets at Family Fare at another store to save time. She's also prone to switching brands or items if she's influenced by a store demonstration that she often sees in warehouse stores.

  39. 39. Sarah | Making Ends Meet About Sarah Sarah and her family are hard working and face a lot of challenges week to week. Like many American families, Sarah's family has been greatly impacted by an aging group of parents and a child that has returned home. As a result, she works with a budget and can't be as choosy when it comes to shopping. She shops 3-4 times a week and is always focused on savings and value items. Sarah has very little time to herself because she is a part time caretaker to her mother. She has very little disposable income to pamper herself.

She's incredibly motivated by weekly ad pricing, coupons and temporary price reductions. She buys in bulk whenever possible. She likes our store for it's convenience. She can find anything and everything her family would want and it's proximity to her house and smaller size allow her to get in and out quickly. She knows where everything is in the store and even knows a few of our associates. Shopping trips are some of the only time that Sarah gets to herself. She's not particularly health conscious because doing so is a strain on the budget. Organic, specialty items and luxuries just cost too much. She often buys bulk fresh chicken, frozen meals or meal solutions because they're easy for her family to prepare for dinners when she's at work and are quick in a pinch. Sarah is price sensitive, a private brand buyer and forgoes things she likes to make sure she's getting the right deal. Before hitting the store, she reads through the weekly ad and clips coupons to make sure she's saving money. She spends about $25 per trip. Sarah's Shopping Mix Other stores Sarah might consider include: Dollar General, Walmart, Meijer, Aldi, Save- A-Lot or drugstores. While she always makes a stop at Family Fare, she will chase a deal when one is good enough and may purchase items she normally gets at Family Fare at another store to save time.

She's not a power user, but has downloaded a few apps that make shopping, saving and staying connected with family a little easier. She doesn't use Facebook or social media but does use her phone as her primary way of accessing the internet.

  42. 42. Patricia's Journey s LevelofInteraction It's Monday. Let's shop! Meal Plan and try at least one or two new meals a month Habitual shoppers and cooks Keeps a regular list of staple items. Doesn't seek coupons, but uses them when they see one that fits them. Plan based on what they feel like, and what social events are on their calendar. Visit different stores daily and are willing to try new things. Grabs small shopping cart and stops for coffee. They follow the flow of the store and take their time browsing and chatting with associates. Read labels to check if they're "allowed" to have an item to dietary restrictions. Goes through staffed check lane and buys candy for grand kids. Look for demos and are prone to impulse buy because of them.

  43. 43. Rick | The Single Millenial About Rick While Rick enjoys his work, he is under the impression that he never has enough time to fit everything into his busy schedule. He has many hobbies that he longs to spend more time on and feels like his expanded role at work has cut into valuable time. As a result, he tries to find ways to remove the seemingly mundane tasks in front of him. In his spare time, Rick likes fishing, playing hockey, going to the gym with his friends, traveling, attending sporting events, working on his car and going to the bar to watch a game. He enjoys television and spends a good deal of his free time on the Internet despite the fact that he always feels pressed for time. How Rick interacts with Family Fare Supermarkets Rick shops at several stores and generally goes with the store that is most convenient. He only "cooks" two times a week. For Rick, cooking is preparing sides for a rotisserie chicken or a quick meal solution that is economical and quick. He doesn't like to waste too much time in the kitchen. Rick leans towards frozen meals and healthier quick meal solutions. His grocery store trips usually include beer and spirits. He buys lots of snacks to take with him to his job site because he seldom gets out for lunch with co-workers. He is striving to eat healthier now that he's closer to 30 but doesn't sweat grabbing some wings and a beer with his buddies after a long day if it means he doesn't have to go to a grocery store. Rick isn't price sensitive and mostly shops based on what he feels like having that week. He's not a planner and almost never knows what he'll be eating unless he's entertaining friends or a date. He would be open to help if it was easy and quick. Rick's Shopping Mix Other stores Annette includes in her weekly shopping trip include: Meijer, specialty wine and liquor stores, drug stores and Target. He doesn't go out of his way to stop at Family Fare, but has experience with the store from his youth. He stops when it's convenient. Rick's Needs: Rick could be easily inspired by the right set of mealtime solutions and would be ripe for online ordering and delivery or even curbside pickup. He wants to spend less money at the bar and eat at home but isn't willing to put the work in to doing the actual cooking. Fresh selections and healthier options are something he'd choose if he had the time to do the shopping. He wants the conveniences of a full-service experience without the hassle of actually going into a store or being bogged down by bigger box stores like Meijer.

He has a Facebook profile but is thinking of "quitting" because it takes up too much time. He's not an avid follower of blogs, but does get most of his news from Techcruch, Buzzfeed and the Huffington Post.
