Team Managers help their organization to shape and design their future with Business Design projects that matter. Leading a team of Team Experts and guided by an experienced Business Design Coach means you'll get into the drivers seat. Buckle up and learn more about your responsibilities and key activities.
Business Design Coach
The Team Manager leads a project team and is accountable for the results of a Business Design project. He / she is a MacGyver type of person with an overview of all activities involved in the Business Design project driving the project team to high performance. As part of the project team, he / she prepares and participates in workshops and works on content-related tasks in between. The Team Manager is also the link to other divisions in your organization. It is essential that the Team Manager is trained in Business Design before he / she kicks off a project.
We train Team Managers in our Business Design Academy. Join us for our next Business Design Certificate Program (DE)!
As a Team Manager you work very closely with the Business Design Coach and your project team. Your responsibilities include:

Establishing a high-performance work culture on a day-to-day basis
Preparing and moderating workshops (together with your Business Design Coach)
Getting the project team up to speed
Assigning and tracking tasks (rigidly)
Working on own content-related tasks (e.g. field research, prototyping)
Managing other stakeholders (e.g. sponsor)
These responsibilities result in a number of key activities across the five phases of Business Design. Take a closer look at the table below for more details.
