At my workplace I am planning a research effort studying some in-house software. I would like to use Gaver's Cultural Probe technique because the exploratory nature of the methodology appeals to my research needs, but I need to adapt it to a more corporate environment. I am having trouble finding studies that have made this adaptation so I'm asking if anybody knows of any such studies or has personal experience in a similar endeavor.
Edit: The cultural probe technique is a fairly open ended discovery technique that uses various artifacts to collect information about a target population; the technique is intended to increase the space of design possibilities. The artifacts used in the study vary widely but typically eschew formal surveys and questionnaires in favor of more personalized items like a photo-diary, or a city map where participants are asked to point out the places they like or are afraid of.
What I am looking for in this question is advice or previous studies that give specific recommendations as to how I can best adapt the technique to a business environment (where artifacts like a photo diary might not be feasible) without destroying the creativity of the methodology (i.e., by just handing out surveys).
