About

Managing Design 2017 will be single-day, single-track conference on the topic of how Design Management happens, focusing primarily on the Australian context.

This will be the first time we've run a conference on this topic, but probably won't be the last.

What it's about

As Design grows in status towards being a critical business function for organisations of all shapes and sizes, the challenges of creating, building and managing design teams also grow. Whether you are leading an internal design team or running a design agency; team structure, engagement models with the business, culture, and professional development are all factors that affect the success of Design.

This conference will explore these challenges, with insight from people directly involved in the management of Design and Design's role in delivering strategic value to the business at all levels from the C-Suite down.

It’s a community conference

The conference will be focused on the Australian design community, with presentations by local speakers and opportunities to share experiences with each other.

Who is it for

This conference is for anyone who is responsible for figuring out how to get design done in an organisation, managing the design discipline or team; or simply looking to improve the way you do design. Even if you are part of a small design team and want to learn how others have managed design, communicated and influenced; there will be something for you.

Who’s responsible

Managing Design 2017 is proudly run by the team at UX Events.
