Bringing in a new team member
Recently, new professionals have joined the team of the Open Design School, ensuring a renewed flow of ideas.
The horizontality on which the philosophy of work and exchange of knowledge among the participants is based, according to which all are both teachers and students, creates a necessary inclusive balance that needs time to stabilize, making this one of the more delicate moments.
Each of the members, with his personality, his professionalism, his own experience, and culture, can be a decisive element for the work dynamics within the group.
For this reasons, according to our principles:
Bringing in a new team member is the single most important decision at the Open Design School:
“Given the operating structure, each new member can either fundamentally enhance or compromise group dynamics. It is preferable for teams to expand slowly rather than suddenly, allowing group dynamics to adjust and giving people time to understand what personalities and skill-sets will complement the team.”
