Grab your one minute on the Business of Design.

Setting a growth path

In the hurly burly of everyday studio life we often lose sight of the bigger picture. We feel like the business is growing but we're not in control of the growth. It's being dictated by the clients (or lack of them).

As the owner or manager you have the responsibility for guiding the business but you need everyone pulling in the same direction as you. You need the team to get behind you and work on the business with you.

This is what I have been able to achieve with studios who have done the Business of Design Leadership program.

Getting results

I have watched a sizeable increase in productivity, a change to the workplace culture and the team taking ownership through this program.

It's the MBA that the whole studio can do while they improve your business.

The best part: the increases in productivity and new business pays for the program.
