Operationalizing Design from the Ground Up

Anne Purves

Director of Design Operations, Pinterest

Whether you have a team of ops people to help execute or you’re a team of one with no ops experience, you’ll walk away from this talk with tactics to bring some calm to the chaos by creating efficiencies, role clarity and alignment within your org.

Anne Purves is the Director of Design Operations at Pinterest. She has not only shaped the role of ops within the organization, but has also championed design through the rapid growth of the company. Anne has also found a way to introduce “process” into cross functional teams and not have people revolt. Prior to Pinterest, Anne hailed from both agency (Method SF) and product worlds (Jawbone) where she had in-depth experience working with a variety of clients and complex design challenges. She lives with her husband and son in San Francisco.
