    S2E17 - Hidden By Design - Design Ops

    Design Ops is there to help Designers "Doing the job that matters"  

    NNGroup defines the Design Ops as "The orchestration and optimization of people, processes, and craft in order to amplify design’s value and impact at scale."

    As soon as more people works together, and groups start to form in companies, then the overhead and bureaucracy becomes a factor in the way that everyone works together. This slows things down and becomes a burden to everyone.

    This is where the Ops role comes into play.

    In this episiode of Hidden By Design, we are talking about what Design Ops is, and what it can do for your organization.

    You will learn:


    What Design Ops is
    Why and When you need Design Ops
    The 3 fundamentals of Design Ops

    S2E15 - Hidden by Design - Teslers Law

    Understanding the difference between simple and simplistic, is fundamental to being able to do great design. The second thing you should learn is that users dont care about your design! Once you have these two things in place, then it becomes easier to focus on the right things when designing.

    Anyways, I think you should just listen to this episode, which I believe is one of the best we made so far.

    In this episode you will learn


    The difference between complex and complicated
    The difference between the amount of clicks and the value of clicks
    Why people do not care about your product or your features.

    S2E12 - Hidden By Design - Nudging

    S2E12 - Hidden By Design - Nudging

    Nudging is the art of "ever so gently" influencing someones behaviour. This could be as simple as a countdown counter to make someone make a choice faster, or in a more serious case, package pills in a way that lowers the suicide rate on a national scale.

    The definition of a Nudge is, any aspect of the choice architecture that alters peoples behaviour in a predictable way without forbidding any options or significantly changing their economic incentive. To count as a mere nudge the intervention must be easy and cheap to avoid. Nudges are not mandates.

    In this episode you will learn about

    Choice architecture. Nudges, Sludges, Friction and Libertarian PaternalismSuicide rates and Gym memberships
