  2. Making development of new components easier.
  1. Understand users, content and direction for the main design system website
  2. Understand the tech approach for the future
  3. Understand adoption of the current design system with 3rd parties/agencies to identify potential pain points we can fix in future versions
  4. Understand the contribution model of the design system and how we can simplify it in the future, whilst still upholding our high standards
