Critique is a common exercise in design schools and it is often remembered by those having experienced it as panic inducing, a place of judgement, and, very rarely, where you were acknowledged/confirmed, without criticism, about your hard work. No wonder we don’t have formal critique in the workplace and we’ve been suffering because of it. The design practice needs to get better at showing work early and working through problems together and better - especially in an agile setting. When ideas and workflows become siloed and collaboration is indeed a requirement for successful products, how might we use time efficiently to give feedback, brainstorm ideas, educate developers + product managers, and pull ourselves out of a design hole? The answer is: Critique.
