Surviving Design Projects: Managing Conflict in Creative Environments

A session at IA Summit 2013

Wednesday 3rd April, 2013

8:30am to 12:30pm (EST)

Design work is fraught with conflict. Some is good, moving the project forward, and some is bad, stalling progress. Either way, most designers find themselves ill-equipped to deal with the variety of conflicts that arise. They lack the skills necessary to ensure their conflicts aren’t caustic and counter-productive.
