What is ResearchOps / ATX

So, what are we doing now?

ResearchOps is a new and fast-growing field focused on managing research at scale and reducing operational inefficiencies. The ResearchOps Community (https://researchops.community) on Slack is now 500+ strong and growing. Since its creation, the Slack community has become a place for people from all walks of research and design life to exchange ideas, know-how, and, yes, frustrations, about the running of research teams and projects. One of the most popular topics of conversation has centered around exploring what we mean by ‘ResearchOps’: what does it mean to operationalize research?

The ResearchOps Community is running a series of global workshops to:

  • Create spaces in which we can explore what we mean when we say ‘ResearchOps’.
  • Share knowledge and stories about how we’re doing research today.
  • Give members an opportunity to express what we need and want from our community.
  • And, create spaces for us to meet one another in-person!

The workshop is open to people with experience in operationalizing research, and to anyone else who is keen to take part, and talk ResearchOps.

Some of the questions we’d like to explore are:

What research operational challenges have you experienced? What are your operational successes, if any? What are your operational failures? Where do you see opportunities to improve research operations in your organization? What do you think ResearchOps includes? What should our Community do for its members?

If there are questions you’d like to explore in addition to these let us know and we’ll make time for them.
