Buddy program

The purpose of the Buddy program is to help professional Design Leaders get inspiration, support & coaching by experienced leaders in the field. Our Buddy program is similar to a mentor program, but you coach and learn simultaneously. You will be matched with another professional from our network, but we encourage all our participants to use the community to connect, exchange ideas and experiences.

Do you need a Design Leadership Buddy?
We will offer around 15 couples a place. To apply for the programme you will need a formal leadership position, and you can choose between two orientations; 

  1. Organizational Leadership (i.e. Leading companies) or
  2. Team leadership (i.e. Leading Teams) 

    Important to mention that both tracks above are regardless mode of employment. You can be a consultant on temporary assignment, self-employed, working for an organization or government.


The matching is then done within the two orientations and the specific focus areas that you are interested in (as far as possible).

If you are being offered a place, there will be a fee for the program of 250 SEK covering material and guest speaker fees for our recurring meetings.

The program run once a year, starts in the fall and is facilitated by Jenny Fossum

The application for our next programme is now closed, but you are welcome to apply for next year, starting in the fall 2022
