Lab Culture
Design as Innovation Catalyst

Innovation labs are creating solutions to address social, environmental, and business challenges in new ways. By leveraging data, behavioral studies, digital technologies, and rapid-prototyping, designers are poised to create new experiences, products, and services at unprecedented speed. At #dmiLAB, business strategists, entrepreneurs, and social scientists will compare views on the value of design in innovation, and we'll hear from diverse creative leaders to learn what makes their creative labs innovative, productive, and sustainable.


Be a Part of the Experience …

Now is the perfect time to collaborate with the top design leaders from around the world at the annual DMI Leadership Conference. DMI’s audience is unlike any other—high-level creative executives and managers representing both design and business: decision-makers with substantial budget authority and considerable influence within their organizations. With a global executive and academic community of over 27,000 representing top-tier organizations, DMI offers strategic content, international connections, professional credibility and business opportunities.
