Design team training meeting agenda overview

Design teams can be made up of one or multiple designers who collaborate and work towards a common goal often using different tools, methods, and frameworks. This common goal may include anything from building a website, improving UI (user interface) and UX (user experience), designing a mobile application, or handling any other design project that may fall on the design team. Design team training meetings are typically coordinated by the lead designer or design team manager in an attempt to align these team members while providing them with growth opportunities that will serve them in both current and future roles. 

Education and training are critical for design employees to develop and improve their expertise and abilities. When you provide your employees with training opportunities, you create a learning environment that fosters growth and development. Design team training meetings provide the perfect opportunity to empower your design team to expand their knowledge and skills, which ultimately benefits the organization by boosting productivity, overall happiness, and employee morale. Additional benefits of design team training meetings include: 

  • High retention and low turnover 
  • Engaged and fulfilled employees
  • Being at the height of innovation 
  • Improved employee and customer satisfaction

How long and frequent should design team training meetings be? 

When determining the frequency of your design team training meetings, it’s best to take an individualized approach. Do you have a greater organizational plan that accounts for learning opportunities? Have you noticed a higher turnover rate within your design team? Are there skill gaps missing within your design team? Has one or multiple members of your design team expressed an interest in learning a new skill or diving deeper into one of their existing skill sets? These are all questions you may ask yourself when determining how often you should host design team training meetings. 

When determining how much time to set aside for your design team training meeting, it’s best to reference a design team training meeting agenda template. Taking the time to fill out a comprehensive meeting agenda template will help you determine how much time you need to set aside for each talking point as well as a healthy discussion.
