Research

My research is aimed at the implementation of Collaborative Design Management methods, tools and techniques in organisations. Collaborative Design Management is a way of management that is focused on collaboration and ensures that the right information is delivered to the designers at the right moment, and in the right from. Adequate Collaborative Design Management ensures that all involved stakeholders know what to do, when, how, and why. This will result in lower Total Costs of Ownership, faster design processes and higher quality.

In my research I particularly focus on the integration of disciplines, departments and stages during the design process. Collaborative Design Management methods that have my specific interests are Systems Engineering and Value Management. My motto: it has all been invented in theory already; the trick is to implement it in practice.
