Techniques for Improving Design Management Results


This issue presents a variety of ways to get the most from your design resources. Several authors discuss frameworks—based on case studies for such companies as Thomson Consumer Electronics and Kenwood—for organizing the design team and integrating consultants within the design process. Others offer analytic tools that provide a precise articulation of user needs and desires. There are summaries of approaches for quantitatively and qualitatively evaluating design and design performance and a study of benchmarking as an approach to leveraging design results.
