DesignOps - Delivering Accessible Digital Experience
How can design ensure we design accessible products and services?
How can design operations support the way people in organisations and enterprises work together to deliver better products, services, experiences and outcomes that are inclusive using data informed approaches in a ‘dataful’ world. Data-informed decision making in the product-service continuum means team uses data to inform and direct their velocity. What role does design intuition and qualitative feedback play?
How do organisations adopt design operations to scale practices and embed design? How does Ops support better internal work flows, facilitate agile ways of working, increase adaptability and streamline processes while making people accountable?
How do we develop and manage natural user interfaces, design systems and content at scale?
What role will automation and AI play in the near future?
ResearchOps as an emergent set of operations is helping organisations establish data informed strategies while using insights and knowledge to drive decision-making in knowledge centric cultures. Research operations is helping teams scale and deliver truly accessible content, interfaces and services in ways that are appropriate for people.

How do we use insights and socialise data to ensure its usable and actionable? Are we in danger off creating silos in through specialist communities of practice? What are the benefits of generalists versus specialists in teams?
What type of practices and processes do we need to adopt to support research? How do we close the loop between Strategy, Research, Design and Development to ensure we design for all?
