Design Management Research: Distilling Models to Inform Decision Making

Research is a bridge between the details of particular situations and broader principles that shape a discipline as a whole. In the realm of design management, this volume crosses the research threshold inductively, moving from the specific to the general. The aspiration is to start translating a rich body of lore into models managers can use to guide decisions. For those concerned with technique, a first group of articles addresses design management research methodologies; for practitioners, a second group offers current thinking on several key design management topics.
