About This Workshop

#DesignOps is a relatively new term that describes a set of emergent activities and behaviours in digital product and service design. While some activities are new, some innovative companies (Airbnb, IBM, Google) have been practicing elements of DesignOps, such as design systems using atomic principles and modular code libraries since 2008. #DesignOps is related to the field of #DevOps and is a repsonse to agile ways of working in digital transformation projects that are focused on new product design and development.

In this intense immersive course you will develop an understanding of how to apply the principles and practices that support Design Operations known as #DesignOps to enable flow and tight integration between design and technology and how to deliver design at scale in agile organisations are design-led.

Learn how #DesignOps is revolutionising design practices to optimise and systemise design activities, productise innovation, support user research and insight dissemination, and the creation of visual design systems using atomic principles that speed up design, development and release cycles.
