Trends that recognised Design as a Core Competency in Creating a Sustainable Corporate Advantage

Trends, according to the Joziasse, that caused the design to go beyond mere aesthetics and/or decoration in becoming a source for gaining sustainable competitive advantage was supposed to be:

  • design as a core competency;
  • integration of design into the business world;
  • design management and planning as a focus for consultancies;
  • the merging of business and design education.

The consequence was that some prospective corporations have developed design as a continuous element of corporate strategy.  And out of that is the claim that sustained design strategy allows companies to take leadership positions in their sectors.
