Cover of State of Design Report

When you're in a design leadership position, especially a newer one, it's important to take a step back and look at design across the org. My report takes a look at design maturity models, skills taxonomy, design ops, and design orgs, and defines our design vision, team culture and principles. The audit includes recommendations and insights on future org design, design processes, use of theme-based roadmaps, and scaling design. It ends with a look at remote work and a successful proposal for taking the design team fully remote.
