Responsible Design: Managing the Ethical Choices in the Design Process

The essence of responsible design is balancing priorities. It is a talent design managers use when they address such issues as function, form, and realization of ideas. Yet, in the business of design, the ethical dimensions of these activities often seem vague. This volume aspires to bring the responsible design arena into better focus. The analysis spans the ownership of creative property, product safety, the environment, marketing tactics, and strategies for translating responsible design into a successful enterprise. And within this panorama, agendas are outlined for making responsible design a reality in the organization.
