Upgrade Your Design Thinking Process


Nov 13, 2019



In design thinking, groups generate ideas and then make choices on which ideas to prototype. But making choices effectively in a group can be fraught with challenges related to social and power dynamics, such as status, gender, personalities, relationships, and peer pressure. 

The popular technique of sticker dot-voting is unreliable for many reasons, especially vote-splitting and the bandwagon effect.

In this hands-on workshop, you will learn to use Feedback Frames, an efficient and reliable method for groups to prioritize options and make choices collaboratively.

Feedback Frames are an analogue hardware tool purpose-designed to avoid social dynamic factors and the pitfalls of dot-voting. You will learn best practices in short-listing following ideation, and converging recommendations within large multi-stakeholder meetings.

Who Should Attend

Both novice and seasoned design process leaders and meeting facilitators will find high value in learning to effectively use this deceptively simple tool to generate practical results.
