To learn how to conduct and participate in more effective design reviews, plus learn how to give and receive more effective feedback on a peer level.



We all know what the typical design review process is like, but what we don't all know is this process is often a waste of time. Too often we fail to achieve the goals of the review, have unproductive battles over personal opinion, and perhaps even leave in tears. Even the most experienced teams have these problems. We need to do better.

In this tutorial, you will learn the attributes of effective design reviews, and practical tools and techniques you can used to help your team hold more productive design reviews. The tutorial has several hands-on group- and team-based exercises, include a traditional design walkthrough (to set a baseline), a scenario-based review, a streamlined cognitive walkthrough, a "mad men" stakeholder review, plus an exercise to draft your own design review rules.


Target Audience:

Anyone involved in design reviews, or giving or receiving design feedback.
