Design Leadership Slack Team

  • Discussions around recruitment and whether design tasks are a good idea.
  • Various design leaders sharing their career progression ladders.
  • An ongoing debate around the perfect team structure.
  • Whether managing Millennials required a different set of skills (the general conclusion being they don’t).
  • The challenges of managing fast growing teams.
  • Tactics for your first 90 days in role.
  • You’re a senior design leader of an in-house (i.e. not agency) team.
  • You’re either the most senior design representative in your company, or a member of the design leadership team (at larger orgs).
  • You’ve moved away from delivery and aren’t a “player-coach.”
  • You’re a genuinely nice person who wants to contribute to the evolving filed of knowledge we’re creating.
