Scaling product design teams is challenging. It’s not just about people; it’s also about the structures, processes and frameworks that support your people.
DesignOps aims to address those challenges by applying the same design thinking we use to create powerful products to the practice of design itself. In this online panel event, we’ll be chatting with design and product leaders about the theory vs. the reality of DesignOps, how they are implementing this practice in their organisations, and any lessons they’ve learned along the way.
Whether you already have an established DesignOps practice, are just getting started, or want to understand if it’s right for your team, join us from 10am on Thursday 1 December to talk about the challenges and opportunities it presents.
