Today I start something new. 🚀

During the last 5 years I have built up a UX team of 30. We work for small startups and large corporations, in many industries and many locations from San Francisco to London, Berlin, Dubai and Shanghai. We are also working on our own product, which seems to be a hit.

I learned a lot about how to a , and how these teams operate in many different organisations.

Now I am ready to pass it on.

I will mentor a few selected design and product team leaders to help them:

  • build up their own design teams
  • build a design in their organisations
  • create the right environment, processes and habits in their teams to ensure they can build great products

I can’t wait to meet exciting new people and help them to build great design organisations.

This is for people in roles, who are running product or design teams in their company.

How will the Design Leadership Program work?

The length of the program is 6 months. This is the necessary time we need to implement meaningful changes in your organisation.

First, I will visit you on your site, and spend a few days with you, watching how you and your team work. We will also have some one-on-one discussions about your business and your challenges.

During the Design Leadership Program I will help you to find the areas where you can improve the culture of your company and the way your team works.  I will bring you ideas and tell you stories about how other teams tackle similar challenges. We will talk a lot about what to change and how.

After my initial visit we will have a call once a week to discuss the issues and progress. I will be also available between the calls if somethings comes up. After the first 2 months it will be enough to talk biweekly.

How to apply?

On LinkedIn there was a huge interest for this program, with tens of thousands of people reading my announcement and more than 50 applying in comments and messages.

To address this need I will involve some of my colleagues who helped me building UX studio, to mentor people.

Although we do this program to give back to the product and design community, it is simply too much work to do it for free.  I don’t want to put a price tag on it, so you can define the price you will pay for it on the application form.

Please note that we won’t be able to work with everyone. We will select the people who we can help the most. We will answer to everyone though, but processing the applications will take a few weeks, so please be patient.
