"Fantastic. DESIGN GOVERNANCE really strikes a blow for the design industry."
Alex Tatic, CEO of Attivo Creative Resource (Milano), winner of multiple design awards (among others of the Red Dot "Best of the Best" Award 2008)
"This book does not only provide a comprehensive introduction to all business aspects of design work. It also serves as a perfect guideline for implementing a profit-building design management system in real-life business."
Wolfgang Roman Becker, Senior Vice President and Head of Product Group DIY, Bosch Power Tools
"DESIGN GOVERNANCE is an important read for all designers, managers, consultants, engineers, politicians, researchers, university instructors and students interested in the business side of design."
Dr. Toni-Matti Karjalainen, Research Director at the IDBM, International Design Business Management Program, Helsinki School of Economics
In 2010, India's Hyderabad-based ICFAI university group, initiator of the Design Governance book, has undergone principal transformations. Unfortunately, as a consequence, its book division had to close down. Because of the enormous interest in the Design Governance book, the authors have decided – in close accordance with its co-publisher Goethe Institut – to make the publication available for a free download to the global management + design community.
