About the workshop:
Design Management includes processes, business decisions and strategies that support innovation and create effectively-designed products, services, communications, environments and brands that improve life quality and provide organizational success. The goal of design management is to establish and maintain an effective business environment in which organizations can fulfill their strategy and mission through design. Traditionally, this domain found its implementation in the management of product design, but it significantly evolved and today includes various aspects of an organization, including operational and strategic levels. The workshop presented by Nova Iskra, in collaboration with Gigodesign, will deal with the place of design management within business systems, development process of "traditional" products, but also challenges in developing services and/or digital products.
