A Day in the Life of Products of Design

It’s been an incredible couple of days here at Products of Design, and we thought we might share some of the highlights, including a Guest Lecture by Debbie Millman, The kick-off of this year’s MoMA Partnered Project, a field trip to New Lab, and guest lectures from Blue Ridge Labs! Partnered Project. Check out the photos, ’cause in addition to these special events, the students were soldering up their Arduino projects, hosting visitors in the gallery, working in group projects, and cooking meals in the kitchen. Enjoy!

Change Everything You Hate About Meetings with this ONE SINGLE WORD.

Change Everything You Hate About Meetings with this ONE SINGLE WORD.

There are a ton of books out there on how to have more productive, more meaningful meetings, but the fact of the matter is, you’re not going to read these books. You haven’t yet, and you probably won’t. So the problem is that everyone agrees that meetings are completely broken, but nobody will take the time or the trouble to learn how to fix them. I have an alternative solution, and it’s made by changing one single word. No books, no seminars, no videos, no list of rules to post on the conference room wall. Just one word.
