Scorecards to Pilot Design System Migration

Start building a design system by building a weighted Interface InventoryInterface Inventory

An interface inventory is a comprehensive collection of the bits and pieces that make up your interface.

How to

Take screenshots of all components, dump them to some products like Miro, Fig...
, based on frequency of reuse of common components. Then start with a pilot project. Use Pareto PrinciplePareto Principle
The Pareto principle, commonly known as 80-20 rule, states that for many outcomes, roughly 80% of consequences come from 20% of the causes.

Sweet Spot

  • Potential for reusable components/patterns.
  • Components with High-Business value.
  • How easy it is to build them. Time frame
  • Inspire someone, make them design system evangelist
  • Marketing potential.
  • Can be decoupled and built/don't break.
  • Create a Pilot Scorecard (1-10) that shows you which products have a better score, based on these sweet spots.
