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 impact of design​

How can DesignOps be applied to help the product and design teams to scale with more efficiency? How does DesignOps support better internal work flows, facilitate agile ways of working, increase adaptability and streamline processes? How does DesignOps help organisations to manage all aspects transforming their products and services from research to UX design to visual design and content in a way that is scaleable, fast, and robust across global digital platforms and complex service ecosystems? 

How does DesignOps help teams connect and contribute to product innovation and deliver delightful experiences to the end-user? How do teams in ResearchOps, DesignOps, DevOps and ContentOps work together to measure and deliver value throughout the process using tool-chains that dovetail seamlessly? How do we codify outputs in the design process and apply the principles of DesignOps within diverse sectors and across different sizes of organisation?

Collaborating at speed and scale​

Developing new cultures - changing organisations​

Why does culture matter in the DesignOps driven organization? How do we need to change behaviours, work practices and the way we design and collaborate? What new roles are emerging and how does the designer, product owner, business analyst and the business stakeholders work in together in new ways, using new practices, methods and playbook?

How are different organizations leveraging people-to-machine and machine- to-machine interactions using autonomous systems to design and create new products and services. How do companies need to change their design practices and development processes using artificial intelligence and automation in the era of cognitive computing and what roles will DesignOps play?

DesignOps in the era of AI and cognitive computing​
