- Hi, I'm Lauren Bacon. Welcome to Collaborative Design: Managing a Team. In this course, we'll focus on the key skills you need to manage a team for a collaborative web design project. It's aimed at web designers, project managers, and other creative professionals who wanna collaborate more effectively with clients and colleagues. First, we'll explore how to define clear roles and responsibilities for everyone on your team, whether they're creative team members, stakeholders, or decision makers. Next, we'll look at how to define the parameters of your collaboration, in order to ensure that everyone knows what to expect, in terms of process and outcomes.
We'll delve into the details of running better meetings, in order to make the most of your team's time and energy. Finally, I'll help you to develop skills to avoid the pitfalls that can trip up collaborative projects, including how to resolve conflict and how to coach your clients on giving effective feedback. When you're working collaboratively, there are a lot of moving parts, and it can be easy for projects to break down. But with a solid framework and the skills for bringing the right team together, collaborative design can produce extraordinary results, far beyond what any of us can do alone.
