April 21, 2022, Virtual Meeting: Crafting a Story to Create Change in Your Organization

Crafting a Story to Create Change in Your Organization

Crafting a compelling story through content is how we can inspire change. This presentation will follow the case study of Wayfair’s Design System from the mid-2019 formation of a dedicated team to its current state as a world-class design system. The road from then to now was… not smooth. In this presentation, you’ll learn how a lone Content Strategist in a sea of product designers and engineers was able to draw on the principles of content strategy to drive alignment within the team, implement a comprehensive communication strategy, and create a taxonomy and language for the system itself.
