Businesses today have to be inclusive and holistic and maximise worth and dignity rather than just revenues. Such businesses require leaders who, apart from being entrepreneurial, can adroitly envision and decode the future, simplify the complex and offer enchantment. Such leaders have the ability to design contextually relevant imaginative, creative, transformational and intuitive strategies, business processes, tools and techniques rather than just copy, follow and run the operations.Management and leadership practices of today are found wanting to meet these requirements and direly need re-imagination.

Design as a discipline has been addressing these issues and Strategic Design Management (SDM) is a programme specifically designed powered by design methodologies to meet these demands and fill these gaps.
