Job design for good design practice

Kristina Lauche
2005 Design Studies  
Good design practice requires more than individual strategies and methodology.  ...  The tasks of 19 designers from large, mediumsized and service companies were assessed according to the criteria. The results highlight areas for improvement in the different types of companies.  ...  Others mentioned that the constraints of a budget and the client's expectations put a limit to how innovative they could be in their design.  ...

Design in Practice: Bridging the Gap between Design and Use Dichotomies in Practice-Based Studies

Francois-Xavier de Vaujany, Vladislav Fomin
2006 Social Science Research Network  
Various trends related to technology, organizations and environment have resulted in fuzzy differences between 'design ' and 'use' or 'designers' and 'end-users'.  ...  Four DIU-DIM configurations are also put forward before introducing Jean-Daniel Reynaud's Regulation Theory as a relevant framework to put them in broader sociotechnical perspective.  ...  The notion of interpretive flexibility (Bijker et al., 1993) suggests that designs can be interpreted (and appropriated) differently by different users, leading to instantiations of use behaviours not  ...
