When working on a design team, it can be difficult to know if the mess one feels is them, their design team, or a universal challenge every team feels. People might ask,“do other teams deal with this?” It turns out that a lot of elements people feel should have resolution are problems that every design team faces.

Whether you’re an individual contributor or a people manager, this talk will share the top problems scaling design teams face, how you can anticipate them, and be prepared to face them.
