Design at Scale is People
Peter is going to give a talk about design at scale and is looking forward to hear your thoughts and questions. Design at scale is perhaps the most interesting challenge facing the design industry right now. However, much of the discussion focuses on design systems and processes, which runs contrary to the true value that design brings to companies, which is a humanistic and creative problem-solving approach. In other words, this focus on systems could ironically undercut design’s potential within organizations. In his talk, he explanis how “Design at Scale” is humanism at scale, and shares what’s needed to keep people at the center of this work.
Drop by at Talent Garden Austria and get inspired!
