11:40 AM How to Manage Distributed Design Teams to Enhance Cross Functional Collaboration in the Age of Disruption at the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC)

Previously an organisation that operated under a centralised and project-centric system, ABC has adopted new ways of working across their product teams to keep human-centred design at the forefront of their projects. With product teams distributed across Australia, communication and connectivity is key to enhacing collaboration across the entire organisation.

In this session, MC will share insights into the strategies she has implemented to manage and grow a cohesive, engaged and vibrant design team when the designers are decentralised within the organisation.

- The role of Design Ops in the age of decentralisation
  • Creating a space for designers to connect, critique and share ideas
  • Strategies to overcoming remote collaboration challenges
- Autonomy – and how that shows up for designers - Greater employee retention rates and motivated teams who are deeply invested with the growth of their product designs
