Design methods and factors influencing their uptake in product development companies: A review
Paper in proceedings, 2014
Design methods are necessary to support product development companies in improving their product development processes, and thereby in producing high quality products. The uptake of design methods in such companies is limited and lower than one might expect. There is a wide variety of literature related to factors that influence the uptake of design methods in companies. In this paper, we synthesised this literature, and in particular, developed a framework of factors than can influence the uptake of design methods in product development companies.
