Innovation: designing for change

Innovations emerge from complex, dynamic, iterative processes. But how do designers, engineers, entrepreneurs, managers and users create opportunities and generate ideas for innovation? How are ideas developed into successful products, services and systems? What are the impacts of design and innovation?

Its concerns go beyond innovation for commercial advantage to consider how, through responsible design, innovation can contribute to the development of a more sustainable future.
