Starting out in the heart of Europe, with a Masters in Design Management having worked for various multinational clients as part of international networks and Big 4 companies, a collection of best practices have been collected that are ready to be shared with a wider audience.
Constant research involved European public design institutions, universities and companies integrating design departments into their structures. The work provides an intersection of design and organization development. The role of innovation teams and design has risen to creating strategic change within companies, leading transitions in process management, leveraging inner systems and changing mind- sets. New job descriptions are created; the role of design managers is reinforced and re-evaluated.
Driving further economic value, innovation teams transcend their classical role as the creators of products and services as an output, helping build cohesion, re-formulating long-term missions, visions and internal strategies.
