Design Management Europe Award 2008
The DME Award is a competition to identify and award the best design management practices in the European Union 30 Member and Candidate states. The award sets out to recognise the challenges met by organisations that have been successfully addressed through a strategic use of design.
The contribution that the design disciplines can make to the success of an organisation largely depends on how well such activities are managed and integrated. From a well-prepared brief for a design consultant to the complete integration of a design culture; all such practices require strong leadership and careful planning.
