The book "Innovating with people – The business of Inclusive Design” was launched at the European Business Conference - Innovation for All 2010. The book gives an introduction as to how Inclusive Design can be used as a strategy for better business.
The book is published by the Norwegian Design Council as part of The Innovation for All Programme and has commissioned leading organisations and designers within the field of Inclusive Design to contribute with the content.
The idea is to inspire, motivate and to show how industrial and commercial enterprises can integrate a people-centred approach in their own design and development processes. It is a practical guide and manual that contains the basic information you need to understand, debate and practice Inclusive Design.
The content is compiled by individuals who have had extensive, practical experience in working with Inclusive Design in a business context. The book shares insights and learnings gathered over the years and presented in an ‘easy-to-read’ format.
Case studies and examples explain how other companies have benefited from Inclusive Design.
A practice-based guide details nine research techniques for engaging with people and bringing their points of view into the design process. It is aimed at business leaders, managers, marketers and designers and anyone else who are involved in design, development or specification. It explains the Inclusive Design process, making the case for it both commercially and creatively, and provides a practical guide to techniques for applying it.Can be purchased at DogA in Oslo, and from the Norwegian Design Council’s website or at Amazon.com.
