The Design Management Office: Delivering the Value of Design at Scale

Thu 11 October 18
12:00 - 12:30

Design leaders truly now have “seats at the table” in business, but those seats come with some unexpected strings attached. After convincing design can drive business value, how do we deliver that value team after team, project after project? How do we create sustainable design careers? How do we communicate the value created by design? We have to do more than just build large teams – we have to build and manage teams with the right process, people, and project components it takes to consistently execute. In this talk, you’ll learn about the Design Management Office, a framework for building design capabilities that scale and learn how John and his team are beginning to put it to work at the largest consumer mobile company in the United States.
