As top talent becomes harder to acquire and internet access more widespread, organizations are turning to a new model for building Product Design teams. This will be a hands on discussion about the structure and principles that help foster great teams and are defining the future of Product Design. Sharing stories, tools and techniques from the front lines of a global design team, we’ll outline keys to successfully participating or leading a distributed organization. How to recruit top talent? How to collaborate, support and maintain accountability? How to develop careers? And what to do when your team member joins a meeting from the bedroom, street café, or bicycle race.
