Companies today must contend with unprecedented changes in society, technology, and business complexity. The dmi: Design Management Conference in Bonn will address how design can integrate innovation, simplify complexity, and deliver results. Join us for Design & Innovation Management in the Age of Transformation, as we explore how design is humanizing technology in fin-tech, digital health and future technologies.

 

The dmi: Design Management Conference #DMC18 held every year in Europe, draws executives, founders, and emerging leaders in Design and Innovation Management. The intimate size of the Design Management Conference presents a wonderful opportunity to build your network, spread your ideas, and learn lessons from the diverse experiences of those in attendance. In the fast paced world of design-driven innovation we believe that this type of peer-to-peer exchange is invaluable. The conference and optional activities are designed with many opportunities to meet new people, start new discussions, and work interactively in small groups.

Leading Design

 
Long-term success is achieved by creating a culture and governance that Leads Design and Leads By Design. 
Successful organizations Lead By Design: they create products and services that are so exemplary that they elevate, or even define the category for consumers. But to succeed in this, an organization must Lead Design. They must create structures and processes that ensure that design is integral to the being, thinking, and doing of the business. Design has to be defined, developed, and led at all levels of the Design Ladder.

In this workshop, you’ll learn to identify and develop the prerequisites to Lead Design, so that your organization can Lead By Design. Jan-Erik is a Professor in Design Management at the University of Applied Science (HSLU) in Lucerne, Switzerland. He also is a consultant, supporting organizations to improve effective use of design. Prior, he was responsible for design management at Deutsche Telekom, and a business group CDO at Philips.
