Setting up a Design System for Success and Scale

Design systems are a vital long-term investment in design and engineering resources. In the fluctuating landscapes of today’s markets, the need to build a design system that quickly provides value to the company while minimizing the risk of failure is more critical than ever.

In the workshop “Setting up a Design System for Success and Scale,” you will explore how to identify the optimal initial challenges for a design system to tackle, formulate effective planning strategies for the design system, and communicate persuasively with key stakeholders to gain strong support for the design systems work.

Additionally, you will delve into the importance of tracking design system health metrics. Tracking these metrics over time not only establishes a solid foundation for the design system but also fosters its growth, empowering it to thrive and adapt with strength.
