VDID boosts German industrial design and business results to communicate the importance of design in all industries. For the past 4 years VDID and Grow have been working strongly together to make training in design management for design professionals possible in Germany. With some great success we launched the first program end of 2015. Now it is time for the fifth program to lift off in April 2020.Why?
Companies want stronger design managers that can lead design & designers in a direction that is good for business. In this program you will receive tools and methods to boost the value of design, with directly noticeable outcomes. This way you can create opportunities for designers, the design department and the whole company.
Design Leadership programs are designed for the busy design professional. That’s why a few things are important: Learning while working, an intensive interaction between student & tutor, fresh content straight from reality, low on theory high on practice, directly improvement of daily work and fun! Or let’s say ‘intrinsic motivation’.

The program consists of 4 phases of 2,5 months. It starts with a face-to-face education meeting, teaching several modules. After this meeting, you will be working on an individual and/or team assignment at home. Halfway you will have an online coaching meeting with the tutor about your progress. It ends with a face-to-face evaluation meeting where you will present your work on the assignment to the group. Download the dates overview for the dates of this program.
