UK Design lies between the worlds of culture and commerce, between passion and profit. Design is indeed a passion for things, offering methods that enable them to come into being. It follows that design should also aspire to a passion for the people who use these things, for their quality of life, their aspirations: a passion for betterment. The management of design is about fostering that passion and linking it to the fulfilment of corporate goals and profitability. The Design Agenda explains why it is necessary and how it can be done. This clearly written book: draws on the best methods to provide practical guidance on effective design management contains a unique resource guide to enable further study and research contains contemporary examples to illustrate the value of well managed design In combining practical advice with a theoretical overview the book represents an ideal introductory text for a range of design students and an excellent source of information to middle managers in retail and manufacturing industries.

The design function has transformed and, in turn, has been transformed by the seismic changes in business and society associated with social attitudes and expectations, technology and digitization, media and communication. For designers, these changes have been both enabling and threatening; requiring new ways of thinking, new skills and calling into question the role and value of their work. In The New Design Agenda, Rachel Cooper and Leon Cruickshank from Imagination Lancaster, provide a guided tour to these changes and their implications for designers now and in the future. Drawing on interviews with some of the most highly regarded commentators and practitioners from across design practice, industry, policy-making and academia they bring together the threads from this, the most cross-disciplinary of activities, into a coherent and convincing tapestry and lay out the vision for the future of design and the design profession. This engaging and important book is a must-read for the design professionals, educators and policy-makers who will be instrumental in imagining and implementing the new techniques, capabilities and resources required to take design forward for the next fifteen years.

What is the major social problem in the news today? Who made it so important? Social issues that are widely recognized on the media agenda often demand attention on the public agenda, and in turn move quickly up the policy agenda, creating policy changes. Based on research of contemporary social issues that have hit the headlines - including the war on drugs, drink-driving, the Exxon Valdez oil spillage, AIDS and the Ethiopian famine - this book provides important theoretical and practical insights into the agenda-setting process and its role in effecting social change.

This open access volume focuses on the development of a P5 eHealth, or better, a methodological resource for developing the health technologies of the future, based on patients’ personal characteristics and needs as the fundamental guidelines for design. It provides practical guidelines and evidence based examples on how to design, implement, use and elevate new technologies for healthcare to support the management of incurable, chronic conditions. The volume further discusses the criticalities of eHealth, why it is difficult to employ eHealth from an organizational point of view or why patients do not always accept the technology, and how eHealth interventions can be improved in the future. By dealing with the state-of-the-art in eHealth technologies, this volume is of great interest to researchers in the field of physical and mental healthcare, psychologists, stakeholders and policymakers as well as technology developers working in the healthcare sector.

Philosophy And Engineering An Emerging Agenda

Whereas science, technology, and medicine have all called forth dedicated philosophical investigations, a fourth major contributor to the technoscientific world in which we all live - that is, engineering - has been accorded almost none of the philosophical attention it deserves. This volume thus offers a first characterisation of this important new field, by some of the primary philosophers and ethicists interested in engineering and leading engineers interested in philosophical reflections. The volume deals with such questions as: What is engineering? In what respect does engineering differ from science? What ethical problems does engineering raise? By what ethical principles are engineers guided? How do engineers themselves conceive of their profession? What do they see as the main philosophical challenges confronting them in the 21st century? The authors respond to these and other questions from philosophical and engineering view points and so illustrate how together they can meet the challenges and realize the opportunities present in the necessary encounters between philosophy and engineering - encounters that are ever more important in an increasingly engineered world and its problematic futures.
