More design clarity. Less redesign time. What if methods like Pair Design could increase the efficiency of your team and the quality of your products? Karl Dotter will explain his hypothesis on Pair Design, how he teamed up with Co-Founder Jason Hreha and what to do to start practicing pairing with members of your team. You’ll also find out how to participate in P.A.I.R (Pairers Against Inefficiency and Rework), a fun research program we’re working on which will help quantify the benefits of Pairing.

  30. Attempt to pair failed. Please try again.
  31. Pairing failed? Try again.• Pairing isn’t for everyone! (It’s not a perfect process,try to evolve it.)• Pick the right phases of the design process to pair (ex.rough, proto, high-fedility, you don’t have to pair 100%the time.• Ask for feedback + ask for quiet time.• Try online design & review tools to provide feedback.(ex. We use Pixelapse.com )
