  • Joongsub KimEmail author


This chapter investigates what accomplishments and lessons from pertinent literature can tell us about the implications of interview and survey results with respect to design reviewers’ hypothesized roles. Although developing a coherent formal theory of these roles is not a central goal of this book, the chapter explores the theoretical underpinnings that support the roles’ underlying ideas.
