Challenges

You are developing a leading design practice that meets and exceeds ever-higher ex­pec­tations of customers. Complexity is increasing, boundaries between disciplines are fading, and results must be delivered straight away. You want the value of design to be seen, design ingrained in the culture, and design talent happy to work for you.

Solutions

Design Impulse organises and improves the production of knowl­edge in your design practice. For design is all about knowledge. If your designers perform better, than so does your organisation. Our solutions help you to set objectives, adopt ground rules, and provide facilities to create, share, and use knowledge in your design practice.

Services

Design Impulse offers assess­ment, advisory, and assistance. We also offer trouble­shooting, second opinion, and coaching. We know design inside and out. And we are experienced in knowl­edge engineering, knowl­edge management, and AI. We deliver our services on the basis of commit­ment, parti­ci­pa­tion, and quality.

Benefits

If your designers perform better, then your orga­ni­sa­tion gets better in innovation (Design Journal), value creation (John Heskett) and adaptation (Har­vard Business Review). And it achieves a better business performance (McKinsey), more turnover and profit (Design Council), and a higher return on investments (Design Management Institute).

Examples
