We all dream of working in organizations where design is respected, valued and impactful.
What if we could actually make that dream a reality?

Two years ago, the design team at PlanGrid was understaffed and hamstrung. Today, the team has tripled in size, is viewed as a strategic partner, and is delivering amazing user experiences. In this workshop, Alissa Briggs (Head of Design) and Dave Hora (Research Leader) will provide practical tools for you to lead your own design revolution.

This workshop introduces the Vision Map: a tool for transforming your design team. You’ll learn how to get alignment on your vision, assemble your team, and choose the right tactics. You’ll hear practical tips and real-world stories from our own experiences and have an opportunity to share your own. And most importantly: you’ll have the opportunity to create your own Vision Map and artifacts to guide your own organizational change.
By the end of this session, you’ll know how to:
* Identify where your organization is at today and where it needs to go
* Assemble the right team and allies to accompany you on your journey
* Choose the right tactics to reach your vision

This workshop is accompanied by worksheets and resources you can use with your team, which will also be made available online. You’ll leave with everything you need to chart your course to the design team of your dreams.
