"…the management of design alliances has become necessary for business to be successful, responding to challenges of new complexity. …ever increasing specialisation pushes people in different disciplines away from each other, so that managing alliances between members of multidisciplinary teams poses a continuing challenge. This book shows us how to meet these challenges and manage these and other alliances. It is deeply researched and full of interesting and relevant examples." Bill Moggridge, co-founder, IDEO Design is a creative source of competitive advantage for companies. Trends indicate that design expertise is increasingly outsourced by companies. This book focuses on design alliances and how these can be most effectively managed to achieve commercial success. It argues that the creative knowledge is located in the alliance formed between the client and design firm and that this can become a strategic competence which impacts on the company’s innovative ability and business performance. If the design alliance is nurtured and incorporated into decision-making at a strategic level, then the commercial benefits are high. But if the design alliance is neglected, then the outcome can be disastrous. A unique feature of the book is the way in which it brings together a conceptual framework for examining design alliances, coupled with practical examples in the form of international case studies which deal with all aspects of the process, so as to cover the acquisition, absorption and sustenance of a design-based competitive advantage. These cases include, among others, Ericsson’s mobile phone, Novo Nordisk’s Novo Pen, HAG’s office furniture, Ingersoll-Rand’s tools and IBM’s Notebook computer. By using examples, cases and dialogue with practitioners, the book’s appeal is enhanced to include both academics and practitioners. This includes students of design, strategic management, product development, marketing and technology, and managers involved in design and product development.

Tyler Is Not Here
This book provides an excellent, well researched and clearly argued approach to design management. Having used it in teaching design management, I consider that it is an ideal text, especially for postgraduate students. The book avoids the 'evangelising' on design that typifies much of this literature, and adopts a critical approach that recognises the diverse nature of design management.

While the book has some interesting and useful case studies, many of them are difficult to read and are poorly edited, obstructing the communication of what could be good theses. Also, some of the papers included are substantially more academically inclined, and are of little practical value. On the balance, it is a useful resource to look inside the way design and design management are handled in a variety of companies and industries, but it is less useful in plotting a way forward.

I'd advise that this one be avoided if you're looking for practical methods of actually managing design alliances. The entire book is really just an exhaustive definition of the concept of design alliances, with detailed descriptions of the various types that exist. No real practical information for the manager or executive looking for help with any one particular situation.
