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

I’m thrilled to be the producer and co-ordinator of this exciting new global conference. Join us Manchester on May 30th & 31st in Manchester . The theme for this year is:

‘Agile and Beyond – New Frontiers in Design’

Learn from the world’s leading designers and developers how they are tranforming global businesses and creating new products and services using DesignOps, ResearchOps, ContentOps, and DevOps and the EnterpriseOps model.

Design has never been so impactful, relevant and important in the delivery of great experiences, new products, innovative services and disruptive business models. We are seeing the emergence of new ways of operationalising design by systemising practices and using toolchains to collaborate across platforms while working at speed and scale within a ‘one-team’ culture to deliver transformation through agility.

This conference serves as a platform to share new ideas, practices, approaches and identify the important issues facing designers, developers and business leaders working at the cutting edge of digital innovation.

How can DesignOps be applied to help 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?

Collaborating at speed and scale

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 success, impacts and deliver value? What toolchains can we use that dovetail seamlessly to increase flow and deliver efficiency? How do we codify outputs in the design process and apply the principles of DesignOps within diverse sectors and across different sizes of organisation?

Day 2 | May 31st, 2019

Developing new cultures – changing organisations

Why does culture matter in the DesignOps driven organization? How do we 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 together in new ways, using new practices, methods and playbooks?

DesignOps in the era of AI and cognitive computing

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 in the era of cognitive computing and what roles will DesignOps play?
