This course introduces students to contemporary methods, tools, and practices of creative collaboration and the management of thriving teams. Registering the ongoing shift toward distributed, remote, and more deeply collaborative work methods and toward more equitable and inclusive practices encompassing a diversity of experiential and intellectual viewpoints, the course presents design thinking, along with contemporary group facilitation methods such as appreciative inquiry and and a focus on the role of psychological safety in effective team collaboration, as means through which to understand and give form to new team dynamics and workflows. In a series of hands-on, project-based experiences involving the lenses of self, team and project, students apply theoretical insights and course readings, gaining insight into their own management strengths and the effective leadership of creative teams. The course draws on learnings from the concurrent Introduction to Strategic Design and Management and Economies and Societies courses, and gives students opportunities to practice project management and group facilitation skills they will leverage in the program’s other studio courses.
