Strategic designer competence framework: Towards new understandings of the foundational skills

Publikation: Konferencebidrag uden forlag/tidsskriftPaperForskning


The aim of this study is to inquire into the particular competences required in strategic design. Drawing on a review study of strategic design competences and juxtaposing that with a review study of creativity competences, the point of departure is here an outlining apparent differences and similarities between the two theoretical fields. While a striking convergence is found when it comes to creative, cognitive approaches; the field of strategic design appears to deprioritize “domain-relevant” skills, which in the field of creativity studies, are regarded foundational basis from which any performance must proceed. This discrepancy is discussed based on an empirical study and a new framework of strategic designer competences is proposed.
