In this age of business, the speed and quality of a company’s execution matters more than ever before. Design has earned a seat at the executive table and in part because of this designers need the tools to articulate their business impact. It’s important to design in such a way that realistically looks at the potential impact (ROI) and creates consistent design velocity for a company. It’s important that we set certain expectations when setting up a company to increase our chances of success.
In this talk, Chloë will teach you how to optimize the design process to rapidly ship products. We will explore what ROI and design velocity are then look at how a growth mindset and power of not knowing are the key to acceleration. Based on this key we will discuss the culture, team structure, processes, technology and tools that empower us to generate business impact. We all want to be more effective at our jobs. You will come away with a framework to help you design as an individual, team leader or organization.
