Author:

Ruuska, S.

Abstract:

In mobile terminal business it is necessary to know the user since the products are used for personal purposes in physically, socially and culturally varying contexts. Acquiring useful data from culturally diverse user population is a challenge. Ethnographic research can be applied in studying activity practices and cultural differences for product creation and internationalization.
