Following on from last week’s question about where you work, we want to know about how you manage your studio or agency…

The business side of running a successful studio or agency is as vital as the creativity within it.

So who looks after it where you work? If you employ a studio manager, what kind of things do they do?

What do you think are the most difficult aspects of managing a creative business? Is it getting clients to pay, managing staff, sorting out the bills?

Have you employed a different approach to running the business in the current economic climate?

What have you had to do, or cut down on, as a result of recessionary pressures? Are you just watching what you spend, or even implementing pay freezes?

So, we want to know about the less glamorous but vital parts of the creative workplace that help make your company run smoothly (or not).

Question of the Week is produced in partnership with MajorPlayers. You can read all of our previous Questions, here.
