Japan Design Management Association Agenda 2021

The Japan Design Management Association is thinking about the future of design management and its activities in five phases. It is 1. Social design 2. Regional design 3. Life design 4. Corporate design 5. There are five phases of creativity education. Until now, design management has developed by developing the theory and practice of design in the cycle of management, technology, production, distribution, consumption and life culture from the viewpoint of "corporate design". This axis will not change in the future, but today, the roles, practices and research required for design are social (Society), regional (Region), life (Life), and management (Corporation). , Directed to the creative side (Creation). At the same time, these things are also required for corporate activities, research and development, and education. In addition, the SDGs "Sustainable Development Goals" are also required to be put into practice in society, regions, companies, and education as realistic issues. The Japan Design Management Association (JDMA) will develop comprehensive activities through social cooperation and international cooperation, based on practice and research on these issues.
* The SDGs were adopted at the United Nations Summit in September 2015, and are the 17 goals set by 193 UN member states to achieve in the 15 years from 2016 to 2030.
