UX Architect and Design Leader



Scaling design efficiently with DesignOps

In this talk, Erica will share the story of how her design team developed tools and processes to be used by 200+ developers and managed to remove UX bottlenecks and empower product teams to create high-quality designs.

This process required a transformation from a development-driven organization to a design-driven one, as well as connecting design and operations by sharing and expanding design intelligence throughout the organization.
