    Hi Aarron! I'm about to start as the next Design Director of a student-run design studio at Northeastern University (called Scout!). We've already grown a lot in the ~3 years since we started, but we're still trying to figure out our process, in terms of hiring a team, choosing our clients, and how we do our work. We have some constraints in that our members are doing work while in classes, our projects can only really go for 4 months, and we work with a lot of early stage ventures. Considering this, I'm interested in trying out an agile process and introducing a more formalized strategy phase, but we have some concerns about implementing this with a part-time team.

    I'd love to hear any thoughts or advice you might have! Thanks!
