comment What is the minimum amount of information you need in order to perform a quality heuristic evaluation?
I do realize that, but say I'm evaluating a site with several distinct audiences, aren't I doing my client a disservice if I don't think about how the site effects those different audiences? Like, stack exchange has several user groups: askers, answerers, and administrators. I don't know what the admins on this site actually have to do, so how would I competently do a HE from their perspective without user research data?

Isn't it sometimes useful to put yourself into the head of a persona or two?

comment How to sell people on the benefits of user research?
In my experience, persuasive argument is a necessary tool for any UX professional and so asking for strategies around that seems like a perfectly legitimate question to me. If there's a site that you think this question lives on better, though, please point me to it.

Yup, I do know about this stuff. But let's say your in my position. How would you go about starting the conversation? How would you get management to actually read that stuff and take action?

comment How do you go about comparing the usability of platforms?
@BenBrocka The SUS isn't something we'll be able to use because we don't have access to users at this stage and even if we did we don't have time to implement a survey. And no, we've been able to compare the usability of implementing systems on the kiosk with some defined metrics pretty well, but we've had a hard time comparing the usability of the output of the kiosks in any kind of consistent way since what you can build with each system is so variable.
