Wireframe, code, design, deploy, test? If you google “design process” you’ll find hundreds of handy workflow diagrams that describe an ideal workflow. Process diagrams and carefully detailed plans make people feel good. The only problem is that few of these workflows have ever survived an encounter with a real project.
Here’s why. Creative processes aren’t linear. They are messy. Development is messy. People are messy. And that’s ok.
In this workshop, participants will turn a diagnostic lens on their own process. Together, we’ll examine current workflow practices and expose the structures, assumptions, and values inherent in them. From there, each participant will develop a plan for improving — or radically re-working — the design process of their own practice or organization.
