Hiring good DesignOps folks

We're mooring up in California for episode three of DesignOps Island Disc, with Meredith Black, DesignOps behemoth, author and speaker. For those who don't know Meredith Black, she literally (co-)wrote the book on DesignOps, and has built and led DesignOps teams at places like IDEO, Facebook and Pinterest. We sit down and have a chat with the most knowledgable and nicest person in DesignOps about what a good DesignOps hire looks like...
