comment Does anyone have statistics on usage of the Kano Model?
Time...money..time... :) i rarely see a Project Manager advocate on the user's needs and more about meeting some agenda / deadline that outside those needs. Product Managers aren't much different in many ways "invest low, high impact" are generally both motivators. A good Prod Mgr will set the "themes" and react to delivery. If they get involved in delivery (ie hands on) ..probably a dangerous move on everyones part.

comment Statistics or research on browser window size based on the display screen size
Oh ok. Yeah I was just trying to ascertain that sizing is part of the data (probably deeper down that rathole) which could if done wrong "poison the well" depending on your audience you're soliciting or showing the said data to.

comment Personas without made up stuff?
Actually no. Persona(s) and team recall is a way of trying to create an assumed bias and will always be cherry picked to death anyway. Ux Persona's are a focus for Product Owners to outline who they WANT to target not who they ARE targeting as no matter what happens the moment you create a new or updated experience your essential data becomes invalid anyway (as you've changed the landscape). Also recalling Personas is quite an attack on Working memory for the best of us, aggregate forms of Persona(s) are shallow attempt to reduce cognitive load for recall purposes.

comment Is it best to be exclusively a UX designer or Do development, products or UI as well?
@Franchesca its complicated to fix the gender imbalance. It's probably going to take a few generational cycles to reshape the population to a "normalized" view. I don't think companies today actively suppress women in their roles its probably actual the macro environment around them (mums pressured to raise children, re-entering workforce from baby timeouts, putting attractive female amongst lonely geeks regresses back to primal cavemen stupidity etc). I will say in Microsoft when I was there, girls held their own and then some. I was surrounded by girls in my area anyway :)

comment Is it best to be exclusively a UX designer or Do development, products or UI as well?
Agreed. I work for a fortune 500 company at the moment and we have 1000's of Product Managers on more products I can count - all to often I ask these roles "What features do you have, what's working vs not and what do you want to do tomorrow" to get a sense of the challenge. I rarely get answers on the first two but always the third. What this tells me is that its not UX its more about Feature growth, specifically UX becomes this forcing function on maturity - as when you do UX you can't hide immaturity any more.

@Franchesca the money spent was on research firms to go out and explore the design agencies / enterprise etc and interview people on the "how" they got to where they are and so on. Gender didn't really factor into the data as its really a moot point. Sizing the design market on gender would offer little value to be honest (ie a weapon or tool depending on who's bias reallY)
