Weatherhead School of Management

This is a working conference to explore in concrete terms what we mean when we talk about managing as a design activity. How is the convergence of these two disciplines changing the way we practice and think about management as well as design? How will this convergence change organizations in the future?

The Managing + Designing conference explored the convergence of management and design through an innovative format of conversation among a select group of academic and professional leaders with experience in both management and in the new forms of design that are oriented toward organizational change. We sought to articulate guiding ideas and generative methods for developing effective programs and lines of research that will ensure positive impact on organizations and society.
