HCD Meetup 7: How to Build a Well-rounded, Effective Product Design Team


February 22, 2022



Open To Public

In this fireside chat hosted by Katral-Nada, Jonathan Steingiesser will reflect on his last role as well as previous roles in Australia where his mission was to grow product design teams and mature the understanding and practice of design within the organisation: the good, the bad and the learnings!


About the Session:


Building your product design team is more than just finding talented designers and researchers to do the work. You have to evaluate skills, culture fit and assess your company’s needs to understand how all of the pieces fit together.


In this fireside chat Jonathan will share his views on the people, product mindset and process required to create impact in any organisation.
