What this event is about
‘Design Ops’, which means Design Operations, refers to all the processes, methodologies, and tools that design teams adopt to achieve continuous success in their work.
Design has come a long way - more companies are now aware of its importance and are hiring more designers to help deliver that value and a high-end user experience needed to scale companies or teams.
Design Ops refers to all of the processes, methodologies, and tools that design teams adopt to achieve continuous success in their work. With more companies readily investing in their design teams, providing value for teams goes beyond equipping them with both digital and physical work tools.
This session will feature top designers from different companies in the ecosystem who will share a practical understanding of Design Ops by discussing how they are set up, team culture, and the methodologies adopted to optimize for growth.
