Cross-Functional Design: Corporate Reality v. the Classroom Experience

In many innovative companies, cross-functional design is critical to enhancing competitiveness. This issue chronicles programs at Philips and Bell Northern Research. Both nurture a broad spectrum of talent and ideas that have directly supported the development of a generation of promising new products. This reality challenges academic institutions to stop segregating disciplines. Contributors present classroom proposals creatively integrating design with other business activities, but these are just first steps toward what must become university-wide strategies to prepare executives and designers for the dynamic world of corporate management.
