The 19th DMI: Academic Design Management Conference
"Design Management in an Era of Disruption"

London, uk 2-4 September, 2014 -- Sold out

 

Design Management in an Era of Disruption. The management of design has arguably never played such an important role as it does today. Changes to the business and social environment are making consumers more knowledgeable and discerning. 'Tribes' now demand their own types of products. Globally-aware consumers want socially-responsive and sustainable goods. Demanding customers want to be served immediately, if not sooner…

On the supply side, innovations and developments in new technologies make it possible to respond to these demands in the form of mass-niche, mass-customised, or micro niche product strategies. In their turn, these are leading to changes in business models and the location of manufacturing as consumers increasingly participate in the product design and development process. These are all indicative of major disruptions to the ways that products and services are designed, made, and distributed. The role of the designer is in many contexts transformed. The purpose of this conference is to explore how design management is changing in this era of disruption.

 

The conference is organized around 7 meta themes that are divided into 19 tracks:

  1. Design in the creation of meaning
  2. Transformational design management
  3. Contextualised designing
  4. Design management futures
  5. Design thinking, leadership and impact
  6. Educating design managers for strategic roles
  7. Open Track

Keynote Session

Leading Design: Managing the Challenge of Innovation
Richard Buchanan, Ph.D., Professor and Chair, Department of Design & Innovation, Weatherhead School of Management, Case Western Reserve University

“The theme of this lecture is a comparison of teaching management in a school of design and teaching design in a school of management. It is based on my experience of heading the School of Design at Carnegie Mellon University and, now, heading the Department of Design & Innovation, the largest department at the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University. I will discuss the similarities and differences between teaching in these two environments. While my experience is arguably unique in the educational communities of design and management, it also reflects important changes in the practice of design that have taken place over the past two decades. I will discuss the broadening of design from what I call first and second orders of design into the third and fourth orders of design. Topics will include the nature of design thinking, a term that is ambiguous and controversial in discussions of design today but remains meaningful, as well as the the nature of innovation, differences in the needs and interests of students, the methods and techniques of teaching, and the emerging place of design in business and other organizations—a theme that is central to the vision and mission of the Design Management Institute.”
