About the DesignOps Summit

DesignOps Summit 2017 was the first conference dedicated to showing design leaders how to create design capacity that keeps pace with change. The event sold out, and we’re looking forward to bringing it back in 2018. Join our mailing list to find out where and when.

Why DesignOps

You’ve recruited great design talent–but sadly, that’s not enough. Without smart design operations in place, those expensive designers and researchers can’t keep up with the demand. The Summit is for you if you want to:

Mingle with and learn from industry pioneers who’ve already built fast-growing design operations at companies like Capital One, GE, Pinterest, WeWork, Atlassian, Autodesk and beyond. You’ll also get to network in an intimate setting with over 200 forward-thinking design leaders like you. At the end of 3 days together, you’ll head home with new approaches, tools, and connections to build effective systems, onboarding programs, and workflows for your team.

Who DesignOps is for

The DesignOps Summit is for design leaders, managers, and practitioners who understand that design organizations can’t scale up design without the support of well-conceived operations.

Who’s behind the DesignOps Summit

Our program committee—Abby Covert, Dave Malouf, Kristin Skinner, and Lou Rosenfeld—have created some of the most valuable and beloved events in the industry: the IA Summit, the Enterprise UX conferences, the Interaction Design Education Summit, and the Leading Experience (LX) conference. Rosenfeld Media produces the DesignOps Summit, along with Enterprise UX and numerous virtual conferences.
