Research focuses on gathering information and making sense of it. The results of the research methods will give you insights that will supply new design criteria.
Create focuses on having a tangible object (report, visualization, prototype, etc) that you can show. The output of the create methods may propose new research material.
Know User 
Explore the background of the project, the context, the situation, location, time and social/technical context.Get to know the people involved, their wants, goals, needs and feelings.
