Applying DesOps in your Enterprise
3 hrs Workshop | Category: Design Practice & Process | Target Audience: Anyone who is interested in optimising the processes used in the enterprise or building solutions that focuses on process reengineering are the most suitable audience for the first part of the workshop. Any User-Experience pro, Design Thinker, Service designer and product-management professional can be benefitted. The second part of the workshop is helpful for the designers and UI developers who use the design system or would like to build scalable design system for their organization or team. Basic understanding of HTML and CSS is good enough for the 2nd part of the workshop.
The workshop will focus on two aspects of DesOps, namely the process and eco-system. The process aspect will be identifying touch points in the enterprise, and try to optimize that with some solution using technology. The ‘eco-system’ part of the workshop will focus on the a building a sample design system using Nuclear Design Model to make it scalable and extensible.
Three key takeaways:
- Basics of DesOps from process and eco-System Angle.
- Learn about how to identify touch-points in the process /workflow that can be optimised to bring automation or technological solutions.
- Learn about the basics of of Nuclear Design Model and applying to build open, scalable and extensible design systems.
