Summary

A look at the processes and structures that support commercially successful product design. Jane will draw on her experiences from across her career, focusing specifically on The Telegraph and MOO. She will present four case studies from The Telegraph, each one emphasizing a particular aspect of design methodology. They will exemplify how her processes evolved to allow her team to ship well designed software at speed, maximising their effectiveness while minimising waste. Jane will then turn to her experiences at MOO, explaining how to lead an effective design team in an organisation that is scaling Agile. She will present the structures, the day-to-day processes and the lessons she has learned.
