About this Case Study

Do you feel like you've been thrown in at the deep end as a new design manager?

Management and leadership are often treated as innate skills - which results in people making the same easily fixed mistakes again and again. One of your core skills as a leader should be the ability to have effective conversations with your reports and the rest of your organisation. To build great teams you need to understand people.

Fortunately many of the skills we apply as UX practitioners to understand our users and customers can also be applied to better understand our organisations.

Come and learn how to look at management through a UX lens. Discover how to become a better leader by repurposing and expanding the skills you already have.
