What is the design process in the business where the requirements are constantly changing, where technology evolving so fast than before we designers finish the first design, there is already a new set of applications we have to integrate with?
If you are happy with a double-diamond for design and excel sheet for delivery, so am I – there is, however, another more effective way of delivering scalable design proposition in the new era.
Systematic design to
the next level.
The following five methods enhance your design delivery and operation. To achieve desired outcomes at scale.
Design at Scale™ – is a fully comprehensive method for design integration and delivery at scale.
With over a decade of successful implementation of the Power of One process which allowed many startups and bespoke design teams equally in agency and client-side to grow from zero to hero.
The “Power of One” is a simple yet very effective proposition with a simple implementation programme and immediate results on the team and the product.
With over a decade succesfull implementation of the Power of One process which allowed many startups and bespoke design teams equally in agency and client side grow from zero to hero.
Brand vision with a distinguished character and broader context of integration with the audience that care.
Being a designer since 98” allowed me to have a unique perspective while observing, defining and building the largest design propositions with the greatest designers of this era.
BDD – Behaviour Driven Development.
Learning from developers made me a greater designer, more importantly, a greater Design Manager. Understanding how Behaviour Driven Development positively influences the overall design delivery is key to the team and business prosperity.
Design and Code go hand in hand, building strong alliances with the engineering team help us to build a robust product.
Technology and the development teams play a vital role in success. My approach to development is simple and transparent.
Active listening, curiosity and extensive communication of our learning will have more impact than an ambitious strategy with no direction and skyrocketed budget.
Observing, analysing, and documenting all we can into a fully comprehensive experience map allows my teams to answer the right question in the context of the proposition.
My workshops are designed to unearth the customer, business, operation and integration challenges. Combining these four pillars allows me to run the data through the Maturity Matrix that helps identify the first efficient actions that guarantee an immediate impact on the business.

Design Ops. with the rest of the business.
Questioning the scale from the quality, quantity, and efficiency perspective allows us to assess and establish small yet well-organised product teams.
By identifying cross-functional features across the transformation programmes, these teams increase the value of design by lowering the cost of the proposition and shortening the time on building shared features.
Communication Understanding the business's communication patterns and pitfalls help me design the product and the process around it. That largely depends on the design communication. Especially when and what is communicated and how.
Taking the initiative in gathering, collecting and distilling information allows me and my colleagues to reach the point of agreement faster than (double-diamond) based proposition.
The quality of the team defines how the product will be executed and integrated within the business or unit. Therefore, it is vital to building alliances and co-ownership with other parties that will eventually take over the product or service to BAU.
Teams and built from people, and people belong to tribes. Deliberately designing the team around tribal models help create resilient and well-formed product teams.
stays at the forefront of every company. Therefore, decisions about a flexible technology and software implantation that supports creativity and automates mundane tasks are indispensable in building a creative product design team.
Technology is here to help, not to enslave us and prevent us from releasing the minimal viable product. If your process, software or technology creates clutter and inconsistency – it ultimately consumes your time and budget.
finally tied this all together into one comprehensive system (method) how one company differentiate from the other. It’s sad to see when companies copy other companies' operation models without knowing their own IP.
The solution here is to embrace the iterative culture that learns and implements new things weekly. Evaluate progress and what makes sense for the product team and business.
All the above is part of the Design at Scale™ Method, a unified proposition helping thousands of designers scale their design propositions.
Please follow the link below to the Medium.com articles focusing on the above in more detail.
Build the team around the proposition to deliver the products and services.
I build an international well-integrated product team around the proposition, helping local and global brands to reach a loyal and engaged audience.
The more does not necessarily mean better. Questioning the quality over a quantity always saved us more than 30% of the budget. In the era of automation, we can outsource 40-60% of our tasks to IFTTT engines and focus on creativity, behaviour, mental models and testing.
When we do our business, we can deliver smarter and faster than ever before without ever filling the timesheet, sending the report, or asking questions about the latest document.

The form follows
The majority of newly established teams rush into the first iteration of the design. We first draw the screen and then communicate what it supposes to do. Revising the Bauhaus – Louis Sullivan methodology and “form follows the function” 
By designing the form before function, we inevitably solve the constraints of the space and navigational model instead of solving the mental model and desired outcome.

It is my belief that it is of the very essence of every problem that it contains and suggests its own solution. This I believe to be natural law. Let us examine, then, carefully the elements, let us search out this contained suggestion, this essence of the problem.

The combined knowledge of the agency and in house design team brough to you in a set of three coaching programmes that helps individuals and teams to thrift in the environment of change
Our ambition for the magazine is to question and stress-test these methods under the delivery while providing alternative options, suggestions, and case studies representing a unique point of view on integrating design function.
The DaS™ coaching is supported by the online Figma channel to provide full and comprehensive support to all participants across the design strategy, planning and implantation while focusing on the product design delivery.
