Design Ops 2018 – are you ready?!
I’m packing my bags for the Design Operations Summit in NYC, and I can’t wait to get there! The content is always fabulous, and it’s an amazing opportunity to network with other UX leaders who are guiding design-led transformation at scale. This year’s the conference is organized around four themes:
Theme 1: Communicating the Value of DesignOps
How might we define DesignOps for the purpose of selling the idea and communicating its value organization-wide? How might DesignOps and ResearchOps have a measurable impact? Curated by Lou Rosenfeld.
Theme 2: Integrating DesignOps
What does it take to integrate DesignOps into your organization? How about ResearchOps? How do you merge strategies, align goals, integrate processes, and connect people to ensure that design and research can be effective and truly scale? Curated by Kristin Skinner.
Theme 3: Growing People and Teams
What types of organizational structures support DesignOps and ResearchOps? What do teams go through as they grow? How do they deal with recruiting, hiring, onboarding, cultivating culture, outlining career paths, mapping out guiding design principles, and learning and development? Curated by Kristin Skinner.
Theme 4: Methodologies and Work Environments
How might we implement DesignOps and ResearchOps in an agile environment or team? A distributed team? A small design organization? A massive organization? Curated by Dave Malouf.
