Highlights from our Design Management Program for Gojek

Ownpath ran a program on Design Management for 11 senior designers at Gojek with a 4/5 star average review.

The program featured design leaders such as Kristin Skinner (Co-Author of Org Design for Design Orgs), Meredith Black (co-author of Design Ops Handbook), and Sameer Bhiwani (UX Leader, Google) as mentors.

Here's what they had to say about the program:


I had a great time working with them. Highly recommended! :D https://t.co/VcdhRV4YB3
