Design is a highly specific practice, and no two organizations will approach their design problems in the same way; the Design Genome Project from InVision helps to paint a picture of the differences between some of the most successful design teams in the world. The tool paints professional design organizations as a genetic proposition, breaking teams down not only with regard to their approach to the nitty gritty of design issues but also in terms of the structure of the teams themselves.
For those interested in the organizational structure of design teams, the Design Genome Project is a massively helpful tool. It gives a broad analysis of teams as centralized, decentralized, or hybrid, and it has testimonials from designers within those organizations to help illustrate the specifics.
There are currently 8 organizations in the project, including Netflix, Slack, and Shopify.
