Announcing the release of my book:
The Design Manager: Successful Management of the Design Process.

My book is a culmination of my Senior Project Design Manager experience during my time as an Imagineer with Walt Disney Imagineering, and my successful design leadership roles during my twenty-four plus years as a practicing, licensed Architect.

The Design Manager: Successful Management of the Design Process

Theories about successful design management are great, but real-world design management processes and the tools a Design Manager can use on active projects are essential.

Learn Guiding principles that have driven me to:

  • Become a successful Senior Project Design Manager at a Fortune 100 company working on large, complex projects.
  • Become a sought-after Consulting Design Executive assisting Commercial and Themed Entertainment market segment clients.
  • Become a successful licensed Architect and design team leader on both large and small projects.

  • Real-world design teams.
  • Learn the importance of Design Change Management Strategies and much more!

The Successful Management of the Design Process is the difference between a Design Manager with a calm confidence to lead a successful project and design team… and a frantic leader who lacks the skills needed at each phase of design and implementation. The difference between an average project design manager to … being sought after as the best leader of the design process and design team through all phases of the project.
