Design and design thinking in business and management education and development
Matthews, Judy H. & Wrigley, Cara (2011) Design and design thinking in business and management education and development. In 25th Annual Australian and New Zealand Academy of Management Conference: The Future of Work and Organisations, 7 – 9 December 2011, Amora Hotel, Wellington, New Zealand.
Design and design thinking have been identified as making valuable contributions to business and management and the numbers of higher education programs that teach design thinking to business students, managers and executives are growing. However multiple definitions of design thinking and the range of perspectives have created some confusion about potential pathways. This paper examines notions of design and design thinking and uses these definitions to identify themes in higher educational programs. We present the findings from an initial exploratory investigation of design and design thinking in higher education business programs and define four distinct educational approaches around human centred innovation, integrative thinking, design management and design as strategy. Potential directions for management education programs are presented.
