A time to introspect ourself, revisit what worked, what needs improvement, what #UX best practices can be shared across other lines of #business and spread #design #culture across the #organisation. That’s what happened for a week-long NCR CXD India Summit. Although it was work as usual, we were able to stretch ourself and take out time to do #workshops and have fun. Deep dive workshops on:

  1. How may we improve our Design culture
  2. Emphasis on transparent #communication to achieve goals
  3. #Product Critique
  4. Anyone can draw
  5. #Leadership Connect

Drew good traction with a positive outcome to ponder on.

Every human has an opinion, and it’s true for our designs too. Our deliverables, unlike others, are visible hence welcome opinion, the question is should we take these opinion as feedback/reviews? Here are my views:

1. Be a good listener — Good designers are good listeners. Listening builds trust and encourages others to open up and provide constructive feedback.

2. Define your design — You should be able to define your approach and should have the answer to 5W’s (What, why, who, where, when & How). …
