Last week ALICE’s Design team held their team offsite in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Since almost all of our Design team lives in Rio de Janeiro, it was a great opportunity for our VP of Design to fly in and spend a few days with the team.
The offsite was a 2-day retreat that gave the entire department an opportunity to come together to focus on strategy and planning, as well as some team-bonding.
Some of the sessions they held were around skill-mapping, goal setting, understanding ALICE users, and defining design processes. The team also was able to spend time barbecuing together and watching a documentary on design.
"Our Design offsite was one of the best initiatives we have had so far as a Design team. It was great to take a step away from our day-to-day work and strengthen our teamwork skills; not only in work discussions, but also in non-work related tasks, like cooking and keeping the space clean."
