Design Leadership: Design Management in an Era of Disruption (2014)
In August 2014, the Design Management Institute (DMI) hosted an academic conference with the theme of "Design Management in an Era of Disruption." The conference, which took place in London, UK, DMI's hometown, addressed changes to the business and social environment are making consumers more knowledgeable and discerning. 'Tribes' now demand their own types of products. Globally-aware consumers want socially-responsive and sustainable goods. Demanding customers want to be served immediately, if not sooner….
The work presented in this edition of the Design Management Journal is the result of a thorough double-blind review process of over 300 papers submitted to that conference. These papers are highly diverse and reflect the breadth of topics addressed.
