A general +1 to that. On reading Brett's description the first thing that seemed an obvious lack was going out and talking and doing interactive tests real users.
Doing that frequently gives me much more bang for my buck than surveys and questionnaires. Not that they don't have value too - but setting things up to get lots regular direct user interaction is what I'd do first.
