Thanks to your help, we’ve completed an initial round of user research and have come up with four themes around which we’ll program this year’s conference:

  1. THEME 1: Communicating the Value of DesignOps
  2. THEME 2: Growing People and Teams
  3. THEME 3: Integrating DesignOps
  4. THEME 4: Methodologies and Work Environments

We’ve defined the themes a bit more broadly on the Program page.

Next step: more user research! This time, we need to know WHO you might suggest as a DesignOps speaker (someone who has inspired and taught you–or, yes, yourself!). Please enter your suggestions by end of day May 4; if someone you nominate ends up on this year’s program, we’ll thank you with the Rosenfeld Media book of your choice:

Thanks for your help!

Update May 17, 2018: Thanks for the dozens of speaker suggestions! We’re now evaluating the submissions and are working to develop the program. Join our mailing list so you’ll be the first to know when the program is live.
