"Sweating the Pixel: Scaling Quality thru Critique"
Joe will outline tactics for delivering high-quality outcomes, regardless of team size and user goals, by practicing critiques. He will map the value of Critiques across a Design Organization–from entry-level Designers to Group Creative Directors.

Attendees will walk away with an understanding of:
- The core habits of successful Critiquers
- Guidelines for Giving, Receiving and Observing feedback
- The difference between a Formal, Informal, and Ad-Hoc Critique
- Five easy steps to running a Critique
- How to pushback against common objections to running Critiques
