HERE AT DMI, WE ARE CONSTANTLY SOUGHT OUT by people interested in learning more about design and innovation management. During one of our custom training classes, it dawned on me that the DMI Review could be helpful for those wishing to augment their understanding. I hope this issue will serve that purpose. It should also be useful for those who have been in the field for some time and wish to get a refresher view by reading these articles. So, thanks to all our authors for sharing their expertise—we think it will help many new managers and leaders who wish to embark on this journey called design management.
Another way to gain broad insight and knowledge is to attend a DMI conference. This year, we have three. We have just completed a successful European Conference in Amsterdam; we will host our biennial Academic Conference (ADMC) on July 28 and 29 in Boston; and in September, we will host our design management leadership conference, also in Boston. Those who are new to design and design management should be particularly interested in the Academic Conference (see Natalia Zuluaga Lopez's mention on page 9). For a very modest registration fee, the Academic Conference offers a wide selection of 150 peer-reviewed papers and several joint presentations resulting from industry and academic collaborations—a new idea we call R+B. Visit our website, dmi.org, to learn more details. I hope to see you there.
