We all know the value of a design system, but if you can’t sell the concept to your internal team, you’ll never get it off the ground. In this presentation for Sparkbox’s 2020 UnConference, I help you respond to key pain points, and I also highlight opportunities to get your executive team on board.
After this presentation, I answered more questions about selling design systems. Check out the Selling Design Systems Q&A session here.
