Conference Talk

Making the Band

Sep 20, 2020

What makes a good band? Is it the lead guitarist? The singer? Or is it how the band performs together on stage? What if the same traits that make up a great band also apply to a great design team? In this new environment, it’s more important than ever to figure out which role you want to play.

She will tell stories on how this happened at Spotify and share a list of tools that can be used to build a superstar design team.
