Join Lauren Bacon for an in-depth discussion in this video About this series, part of Collaborative Design: Managing a Team.
- This course is the first in a series of three related courses. In today's topic, Managing a Team, I'll focus on the ways that collaboration can aid your team building process and strengthen your team dynamics and communication. In the second course, Vision and Strategy, you'll learn how to ask better questions, and collaborate effectively with your clients and stakeholders to develop a design brief and project strategy that leads to extraordinary results. And in the final course, Process and Efficiency, I'll explain how to coordinate effective and collaborative teams, while avoiding consensus paralysis, scope creep or death by compromise.
You can take these courses in any order, but I recommend sticking to the sequence shown.
- Identifying stakeholders and decision makers
- Defining roles
- Choosing a collaboration model
- Running great meetings
- Resolving conflict
- Thanking collaborators
