Designing Strategic Interfaces
In almost every sense, being connected is the norm in the late 20th century. For the business of design, this means that effectively managing the interface among individuals, groups, and technologies is a fundamental challenge. In this issue, contributors explore the optimization of interfaces among people in the design of teams, the sharing of leadership, and the development of relationships with consultants. Some offer new approaches to communications, one considers how the interface among technologies will reshape product design, and another suggests a way to address interdisciplinary concerns in the classroom.
