Get and Give Better Design Feedback Through Critique
Monday, March 14
9:30AM - 1:30PM
110 E 2nd St
Collaboration requires us to share our work and collect other’s thoughts in order to understand whether our designs are meeting the project’s objectives. But we often struggle with collecting feedback. We get less than helpful comments that seem irrelevant or unclear. Or we find we’re getting reactions at inopportune times rather than points in the process when they’d have been useful in informing decisions.
How might we structure conversations to collect useful feedback and make discussions productive? Participants in this workshop will learn best practices, tips, and techniques to make giving and receiving design feedback a process that strengthens designs, collaboration, & communication.

Adam Connor is a designer, author and illustrator based in Western Massachusetts. As VP of Organizational Design at Mad*Pow, Adam helps create positive change by addressing the relationships that people have with one another to foster more collaborative, creative and customer-centric organizations.
Adam and his team look closely at company culture and all of the ways that it gets expressed and reinforced. They explore how beliefs, behaviors and perceptions influence things like roles, structure, processes, and tools that organizations use every day. They then work collaboratively with teams to identify meaningful changes that teams can make to improve their capacity to work together creatively.
