Knowledge is Power: Managing the Lifeblood of the Design Org

Knowledge management (KM) and KM best practices are not discussed as critical skills for DesignOps team members. DesignOps’ responsibilities should include the management of tacit and codified UX knowledge. Everyone talks about design systems and insight repositories. Still, those tools only cover a portion of the UX knowledge a DesignOps team needs to create, manage and make available to the organization. DesignOps teams are responsible for creating, managing, and disseminating processes, tools, and artifacts to support the teams involved in delivering design value and impact at scale.
