Official report of the “Design Policy Conference, make a plan”

Report of the “Design Policy Conference, make a plan”, 17 & 18 October, 2014, Cape Town, South Africa. http://wdcdesignpolicyconf2014.com/

In 1994, a research project was instituted in Colombia to study design policies and approaches. The study revealed that 97% of businesses were small and medium enterprises (SMEs). Only 5% of these had a body in place to implement design in their business, and just 2% had funds to invest in design. Believing that designers need to understand the user, and build a bridge between the user and the designer to design workable products and services, there was a need for design, academia and SMEs to lead and catalyse the process of implementing design in business.

A systematic way was needed to apply design to SMEs: design is not only operational – it must be strategic, too. With this understanding, the design policy comprised three steps: knowledge transfer about design through handbooks, manuals, diagnostic tools and workshops to explain the value of design; viewing and promoting successful case studies of local design; and hosting an international co-creation roundtable and other events to ask what the policy should contain.

Strategic PES: Product-Experience-Service, a visual tool to support SMEs through service-dominant logic

Category : /publications · No Comments · by Dec 8th, 2014

Mejia, J.R., Parra, J. (2014). Strategic PES – Product-Experience-Service, A visual tool to support SMEs through service-dominant logic. Publication at Touchpoint Vol. 6 No. 3 – Blurring Boundaries.

KEY WORDS: SMEs, Visual thinking, Service-dominant logic.

The National Design Program, NDP, as part of the Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Tourism of Colombia, promotes “design as an innovation driver for SMEs through the development of projects, workshops and by providing information in this field, within three strategic lines: knowledge transfer, promoting successful cases, and public policies.”1 The Strategic PES tool that is presented below was developed within the first line to tackle design-driven innovation projects. It has been applied in several workshops and subsequently as part of the Integral Design Tutoring Project (See Platform, 2012).
