Design management refers to a problem-solving procedure or process. This process covers all business strategies, decisions, and ongoing processes that drive innovation and develop well-designed brands, environments, communications, services, and products that yield organizational success and improve quality of life.
Design management aims to guide project designers through every phase of the design process. It is also the process of managing a design. It is iterative. This means that you can backtrack and refine your previous steps during the process.
Design management strives to link customers, management, technology, innovation, and design to create a competitive edge across the three bottom lines: environmental, social/cultural, and economic factors. It is the science of using design to improve synergy and collaboration between business and design, to enhance design effectiveness.
The purview of design management is not limited to the strategic management and functions of design agencies and corporate designs alone; it includes processes, methods, staff, design operations, using design thinking and processes to fix general business issues and problems. Tactical advocacy for design management in an organization is a key differentiator. It also drives organizational success.
Some of the professionals practicing tactical design management include design researchers, design strategists, heads of design, design directors, creative directors, brand managers, UI/UX design managers, executives, and managers saddled with making decisions on how designs should be used in the organization.
Design management was formalized as a discipline in the late 20th century. But, the idea of design management has been in place since companies started investing in designs.
Design management is commonly associated with the following areas:
A manager who deals in product design is expected to manage every function associated with product development. He needs to secure a connection with many other businesses to do this. The manager needs a user-centered approach or a UX-centered approach as the guiding principle for the work.

Service design is gradually becoming important due to the rise in product-service hybrid. It is the other side of product design. Service design features a customer-centered approach or (CV) customer experience approach.
During brand design, the manager’s responsibility is to produce trustworthy and reliable perspectives and create touchpoints and brand experiences that are easily and strongly recognizable to the clients.
This design is focused more on technological outputs than all other areas of design, such as technological artifacts (like a system) or technical processes (like manufacturing).
This is a new and emerging concept. It operates under the principle that you can design businesses from within for effective operation and higher levels of efficiency. A business design manager must be perfect in convincing people of their design’s utility.
What are the benefits of design management? Why does it matter?
Design management is important because it provides a company with the only opportunity to innovate and stand out. In addition, it gives companies the ability to control and manage their design practice better.
