When design stimulates change - Improving business performance through wellbeing?

Published by the Cité du design with the support of Saint-Etienne Métropole, the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, the Ministry of Industry and BEDA (Bureau of European Design Associations), this publication presents testimonies of business leaders as well as local authorities, who participated in the Biennale, and a toolbox on design methodologies. Echoing the general theme of the Biennale “Shifting Work Paradigms”, it illustrates the role of design in this changing environment and the impact on the competitiveness of companies, while improving the quality of working life.

“When design stimulates change…” is the seventh publication of a collection, which was launched in 2012 by the Cité du design. It draws on the seminars and workshops of the Design & Innovation Forum 2017, the businesses week of the Biennale Internationale Design Saint-Etienne and more specifically on the EIDD Design for All Europe and BEDA clusters’ workshop.
