Why partnership building is the most important design skill
Aarron's team at InVision has a unique perspective—they work with design teams across industries and see where teams stumble and what leads to success. They recently conducted a broad study of design maturity with more than 2,200 companies around the world and saw crisp patterns emerge. Sure, high functioning design teams have their practice and process dialled in, but that’s not what really sets them apart.
The most mature design teams—the ones that create lots of business value and have great influence in their company—are in the habit of building partnerships. In this talk Aarron will share some of the findings from our design maturity study and show how partnerships will get you off the design island that’s been holding you back.
