Design Operations is one of the emerging buzzwords in the creative industry. It was coined by Dave Malouf – a design expert who helped raise this design area's importance. As the industry has realized the significance of DesignOps, it is gaining popularity.
However, DesignOps is still a fairly new discipline – it’s not surprising that you might ask, “what is DesignOps?” Don’t worry if you are in the design industry and don’t know. In later chapters, this guide will help you learn everything you need about DesignOps, including its importance, work principles, how to get started, and tools for success.

So back to that core question: What is DesignOps?

Design Operations focus on the health of the practice, the people, and the projects. - Kristin Skinner
