Design Management in an Era of Disruption
Hosted by the London College of Fashion

The Design Management Institute has issued a call for papers for the 19th Academic Design Management Conference to be held in London, UK September 2–4, 2014. We welcome early-career researchers and PhD candidates with work in progress. We are also seeking those interested in conducting workshops.

The theme of the conference is Design Management in an Era of Disruption. The management of design has arguably never played such an important role as it does today. Changes to the business and social environment are making consumers more knowledgeable and discerning. Innovations and developments in new technologies make it possible to respond to these demands in the form of mass-niche, mass-customized, or micro-niche product strategies, leading to changes in business models and the location of manufacturing as consumers increasingly participate in the product design and development process. These are all indicative of major disruptions to the ways that products and services are designed, made, and distributed. The role of the designer is in many contexts transformed. The purpose of this conference is to explore how design management is changing in this era of disruption.

Our goal is to create an inclusive conversation among academics from a variety of disciplines including business (organizational behavior, strategy, marketing, and operations) and design management (design strategy, product design, brand identity, communications, interactive design, user experience, architecture, and environmental design) to examine the ways in which design thinking can inform innovation currently and in the future. We aim to lay the groundwork to build a scholarly community and advance the state of the art in design management research, theory, and practice, and produce a significant contribution to the field through the paper presentations, conference proceedings and producing a special issue of the Design Management Journal.
