ResearchOps and DesignOps 101

Aurthor: Peter Fossick

About This Workshop

Interested in scaling research and design operations to deliver impact and value at scale? In this 1 day online course we will define the principles and practices of research and design operations (ResearchOps and DesignOps). This course will explore how to scale and embed research and design by focusing on people, practices, processes, governance and how to measure impact and value. We will look at ‘Why”and the ‘How’ of research and design operations and how to scale in organisations that want to adopt research led, evidence-based decision making, using design thinking. 

In this online course you will develop an understanding of how to apply the principles and practices that support Research and Design Operations known as #ResearchOps and #DesignOps and how to close the loop between research and design to deliver at scale in agile organisations.
