What is the difference between a practice lead vs. a design-operations lead?
Roadmapping, 2×2 prioritization, and data analysis all sound too familiar for product development teams; these are the same essential skills for running a successful Design operation org, especially if we are the DesignOps team-of-one. The product management skills create stability, scalability, and maps out a process. Coming from a practice lead background, we can easily apply the same skills to design operations. What makes it different is the scale and complexity. For DesignOps, operationalize it is the key.
