Designing Your Design System: Steps to Success
June 25, 2019
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
The buzz: “Countless hours aligning components, fixing broken page layouts, and documenting interaction patterns eventually led to a design resource for teams to use.” (Jeremy Bloom). If your design team is still using traditional style guides and design templates, you’re probably not managing design at scale. Solution: a comprehensive “design system” with pre-defined approaches. Sounds great, but adoption may be slow for multiple technologies, products, business units, and teams. What to do? Start with the basics: establish a design system, understand the benefits and challenges, then use strategies for success. The experts speak. Shawn Cheris, Adobe: “If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch you must first invent the universe.” (Carl Sagan). Kai Richter, SAP: “The relevant question is not simply what shall we do tomorrow, but rather what shall we do today in order to get ready for tomorrow.” (Peter Drucker}.

Designing A Game-Changing User Experience, Presented by SAP
Tuesday at 7 AM Pacific Time/10 AM Eastern Time on VoiceAmerica Business Channel
The impact of design and user experience (UX) on business success is profound. Game-changing user experiences are the number one way to ensure customer satisfaction and enduring loyalty in today’s competitive marketplace.
Design, however, is much more than the way a product looks. More importantly, it is how it works and how it feels.
Whether that’s using a smartphone app, creating a purchase order, or evaluating the success of your corporate strategy, how people experience your products and services has a direct and significant impact on your brand perception and corporate revenue.
Hands-free user interfaces, inclusive design, conversational ux, artificial intelligence and more are shaping the way people work today and will work in the not-too-distant future.
Listen in as leading experts in design and business discuss how today’s advances in user experience will affect tomorrow’s workplace.
