The Studio Management Program was written to help designers wanting to fast-track their move to management, non-designers wanting a career-shift. This level of the program includes mentoring to help designers make the leap into management with confidence.
It includes: Online information: written by Australian design practitioners for Australian designers. Factsheets: Succinct, downloadable subject-focused factsheets. Videos: Interviews with practising Australian studio managers, general managers and design managers talking about how they manage their jobs. Activities: Designed to reinforce the learnings and help you think through how they might be relevant for your studio and your clients. The Business of Design publication: the only publication available about starting, managing and growing an Australian design business. Mentoring: A scheduled, monthly 1 hour zoom call and email contact in between.
The program includes access to the material, entry to our Slack channel and feedback on all activities uploaded. The mentoring is aimed at helping you ease into your position, and offer an additional ear to help you through some of the tough spots.
A certificate of accomplishment is available at the successful completion of the program.
