Currently, user research has been gaining a projection as a differentiator in the development of digital interface products and services, including activities that involve analysis and observations in the context of use, feedback and evaluation. The user, who was previously a supporting actor, has become a major player, key in the product requirements specification, in the midst of a competitive market in constant transformation.. Due to the need to adapt to frequent changes, agility has become an essential element as an alternative development process. This way, an agile methodology was adopted as a way of supporting the demand for speed in the launch of products, thus, deeply modifying the way they are structured and developed, influenced mainly by the time factor. Consequently, activities involving research, ideation, and evaluation are time-consuming, which compromises user research and the application of the principles of User-Centered Design. Therefore, the present research aims at investigating the research with users in consonance with the application of agile methodologies in the development of digital products. The literature review, allowed us to gain in depth knowledge about user-centered design, its principles, associated methodologies and its processes, and to relate UCD to agile methodologies. Through the interviews, it was also possible to understand the issues faced by UX professionals in the application of user-centered design practices in organizations, which generated inputs for the application of an online survey, which in turn enabled both the analysis of activities related to user research in the application of agile methodologies in the Brazilian market. This research reveals how UX professionals apply the activities that involve research with users along with agile methodologies according to the collected sample, the research findings also show what influences in the development of their products according to the presented organizational characteristics.
