Design v. Development – A DesignOps method to ease the pain

By Carlo Frinolli and Imke Bähr

Session type

Breakout Session


Thu, 24 Oct 2019


Breakout room 5 - main stage

About this session

A big part of all our everyday work lives is finding the right workflow for productive and fruitful collaboration between design and development.

At the beginning of this session, we will introduce you to our proposal for an approach developed at the DEED Meetup through co-design, inclusion and teaming up from the very beginning. At the core of it is a more fluid mindset for designing and executing: a working DesignOps process from our point of view.

In the second part of this breakout session, we want to extend the conversation about how others tackle the issue to the group: How might we avoid pain during design execution and work better together?

Our recommendation:

Please head to your breakout session room 10 minutes ahead of the start time to keep everything on schedule and make sure you get a seat, as space is limited in each room except the main stage. Thank you!
