Designing Links among Diverse Forms of Intelligence

The Design Management Lab (DML) in the College of Business Administration at Ritsumeikan University
seeks to organize and integrate different complexly intertwined forms of intelligence
by building up domestic and international research networks and creating a forum for the exchange,
gathering and transmission of research findings in a proactive manner,
with the aim of realizing systematic studies on "design management."

Concept

In recent years, much attention has been directed towards "design management" as a tendency towards utilizing "design intelligence" in management strategies and innovations within an organization, rather than towards "design" as a narrow discipline that deals with product forms and functions.

Currently, various practical "design management" applications can be observed in real-world situations; however, thus far, few studies have been systematically done. What is considered to make such studies difficult is the fact that design management involves a wide range of areas in which diverse forms of intelligence are complexly intertwined.

Hence, the Design Management Lab (DML) in the College of Business Administration at Ritsumeikan University seeks to organize and integrate different complexly intertwined forms of intelligence by building up domestic and international research networks and creating a forum for the exchange, gathering and transmission of research findings in a proactive manner, with the aim of realizing systematic studies on "design management."
