The DesignOps Global Conference is for design leaders, developers, practitioners, product managers, service innovators and business leaders that are defining the way we design and develop new products and services.

DesignOps and the 'Ops' Enterprise

How can ‘Ops’ principles enhance the way and organisation and enterprise work together to deliver better products, services, experiences and outcomes. How do organisations adopt Ops practices and scale with more efficiency? How does DesignOps support better internal work flows, facilitate agile ways of working, increase adaptability and streamline processes? How does ‘Ops’ help organisations to transform and work more effectively to develop a relevant product portfolio within more complex service ecosystems?

How does DesignOps help teams connect, co-create and contribute to product and service innovation and deliver value and enhance end-user experiences. What type of practices and principles we need to adopt to support  ResearchOps, DesignOps, DevOps and ContentOps to enable teams and the organisation to work together? What are the design mechanics and new competencies we need to learn, understand and adopt to ensure teams are delivering at qualified and high quality work that users expect and the organisation needs.

Co-creation & Collaboration

Design Systems and Beyond

How do we deliver better design through better design practices, optimised toolchains, smarter software and atomic principles? How does Designops support the creative endeavour to deliver better design, brand equity, experience equity and service equity? What are the trends shaping UX, visual and interaction design? What are the next steps and beyond for atomic design principles and what is influencing change?

How do we deliver  transformation within different types of organisations within the private and public sector? How do we adapt and adopt ‘Ops’ as we change the ways we work and shift cultures and constituencies? 

Ops and Service Transformation

DesignOps, UX, CX, Service Design, Collaboration, Agile, Transformation & more...

The conference is a convergence of ideas and insights from people who are shaping and informing DesignOps and its related fields.
