DesignOps: Leading the Path to Parity

Frances Yllana
Register to attend

Why and how are creative agency leaders and traditional graphic designers finding their way into DesignOps? What is the future of DesignOps within traditional design agencies?

Most who are looking into the DesignOps space know it for its focus on the Ps: People, Process, Practice — mostly for technology, and mostly for Product design.

In this talk, Frances Yllana will discuss the opportunities for agency leaders to invite DesignOps into the agency space—either as essential functions or a defined discipline and leadership role. Once DesignOps is accepted into this space, might it finally achieve its most elusive P: Parity.
