CALL - for papers for DMI 2012 International Research Conference

Leading Innovation Through Design
The Massachusetts College of Art & Design, Boston, Massachusetts, USA
8 – 9  August 2012                                                                        
Deadline for abstracts: 18 April 2012

The Design Management Institute (DMI) calls for submissions for an academic conference. Their 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. They 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, to be published in 2013.

They invite submissions on the following seven themes:
  • Design-led innovation in products and services
  • Design-led innovation in organizations and the workplace
  • Design-led innovation in business models
  • Bridging research and practice in the management of design
  • Innovations in design management education
  • Developing design thinking skills
  • Innovations in design research methodologies, management processes, and outcomes
