Jesús will share some of the most popular myths and misconceptions on how design teams can be managed:
* designers are creative people who need to be left alone,
* designers are too wild to work in a normal work environment,
* designers need to be kept in a short leash.
Well, these myths were probably created by mediocre managers. And that probably fuelled the first misconception that managers and designers don't get along very well.
While Jesús does not claim to hold the ultimate truth on this topic, he will provide an interesting (and international) viewpoint on how managing a design team can work.
Jesús has worked with creative teams in 6 different countries and managed over a hundred designers. This session will explore how a design team can be set up, grown, scaled and motivated.
