It Takes a Village: Building Organizational Buy-In For Your Design System

11-13-20 Lina Calin

Explore how building buy-in at the organization level for your design system is possible and how we accomplished this for a recent client.

In working with clients on design system projects and in our annual Design Systems Survey, we see again and again how building buy-in across an organization is one of the greatest challenges that organizations face with their design systems. In this presentation for Sparkbox’s 2020 UnConference, I share why building organizational buy-in is critical for a design system, how to go about building that buy-in, and a success story of one of our clients, the University of Georgia.
