Make Stronger: How To Improve Your Everyday Work Through The Power Of Critique.
ABSTRACT: Every day we are either creating something for someone to review or we are reviewing something for someone else. Whether you’re giving or receiving feedback on everyday work, there is an approach which can make your feedback more actionable and less prescriptive (and get the outcome you want). The power of critique applies to anything you create, from a presentation deck to an interface design.
Come learn an approachable way to critique, and even participate in an actual critique exercise. You should be able to use these techniques with your work the very next day.
