DESIGN MANAGEMENT: A GAP THAT HAS NOT CLOSED. / REMAINS OPEN
Lack of training of directors in strategic design management: the case of branding.
The expertise of managers responsible for design management varies according to the specialization and development of each organization.
This unequal management capacity is observed even within the same entity; for example, an excellent industrial design management and a faulty brand management.
Branding is an example of this dysfunction, with serious errors in graphic design, even in big corporations. Directors’ education lacks knowledge of design management and this can be a challenge for business schools.
