Effective Design Reviews and Workshop
with Everett McKay

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 opinions, and perhaps even leave in tears. Even the most experienced teams have these problems. We need to do better.

In This Workshop, You Will Learn:

  • Why traditional design reviews are often ineffective.
  • How to give and receive effective feedback on a peer level.
  • How to turn feedback based on personal opinion into something that is objective.
  • How to handle vague, confusing feedback.
  • How to shut down defending, redesigning, and debating.
  • Why scenario-based reviews result in better feedback than feature or screen-based reviews.
  • Why design review rules are a good idea (along with a sample set).
  • Why positive feedback is important for effective reviews.
  • How to manage up, so that your manager helps improve design review effectiveness.

The workshop has several hands-on group- and team-based exercises, include a traditional design walkthrough, a scenario-based review, and a streamlined cognitive walkthrough.
