About the Presentation

The Design Age:
Or, A young designer’s primer on maximizing value for lean and agile teams.

Design is all about value. It helps transfer value from one person to another. Design insures you have an experience: that at the end, you’re different than when you started. Design makes this difference, and like Babbage’s Difference Engine of yore, specific knobs and levers control how much value you can create with design.

In this presentation, we’ll learn how five levers — models, fidelity, audience, annotation, and velocity — work together. We’ll see how agile, lean, and waterfall teams apply these levers differently at different times to create different value from design.

Friday at work, you won’t be able to stop yourself from asking five, simple questions. You’ll be maximizing design value for every project you encounter.
