Why design as a management tool? Why a programme of this type focused on design as management?

Design and applied arts use processes, tools and management formats adapted to understand consumers, users and citizens as a multitude of niche segments. In this way, the tools of perception, communication, and analysis are used to facilitate the understanding of the tactile and personal perception factors for the creation and management of the processes necessary to innovate, improve and implement functional processes within companies and of public administrations: use the base elements as generators of value.

Aimed at directors and heads of area and intermediate managers in general, Public Administration management staff SMEs managers, the programme offers three modules in which the participant will be able, to develop a personal project to be able to apply the knowledge and the tools in a project of interest to your organisation or a personal strategic development project.

The design is used not only for the generation of products, but also to consolidate, improve and increase the efficiency of the entire distribution chain needed by the products. Remember that Ikea's concept of logistics excellence proceeds, from the beginning, in simplifying and maximizing the packaging of its products. (See details in the downloadable programme)

Ford

Urban planning and Service Design are used, as a known case, in the management of new mobility services and in the development of new forms of service in the distribution of goods, as well as in the creation and management of user communities, based mainly on in the perception of property versus the perception of service that transport has.

Barcelona City Council, Commerce

Cross-use of urbanism, interaction and flows of use in the city to generate and develop strategies and models of occupation and innovative activity in spaces without commercial use.

City Council of Beasain

Programme to promote and create the first model of "city as a service", in order to revitalise existing developments and get the citizens to participate and become a better user of internal transit systems.

Iceland

Democratic regeneration: after the great crisis of 2007, Iceland has used systems and design processes to regenerate democracy and democratic systems in the country, especially in the capacity for citizen intervention and transparency of decisions.

TFL Transport for London

The London transport system uses design management techniques to generate new problem-solving strategies, mainly linked to congestion, such as the use of building sites as centres for the distribution of goods.

Inditex

Inditex uses perception management to streamline distribution and adjust the number and volume of stock, so you can bring your production closer to your customer tastes in the most efficient way. This management of the perception, carried out in the store through series of tests and development series, means that they are using systems based on tactility and the immediate response of multiple market spaces to be able to generate new products and be able to select trends throughout the vertical of products and services.
