Measuring Design Management Results


The premise of the articles within is that design management merits the attention of decision makers because it enhances performance and improves the bottom line. Several essays support this conclusion with hard numbers. There are data outlining corporate outcomes generally, and more specific statistics linking effective design management with positive results in the areas of products, communications, and interior design. Contributors also suggest processes, methods, and technologies that leverage the qualitative impact of design. Research must be refined and expanded, but we are proud to present these initial assessments.
