Contextual inquiry (CI) is a user-centered design research method.
A contextual inquiry interview is usually structured as an approximately two-hour, one-on-one interaction in which the researcher watches the user in the course of the user’s normal activities and discusses those activities with the user.
This technique is generally used at the beginning of the design process and is good for getting rich information about work practices, the social, technical, and physical environments, and user tools.
