Corporations increasingly view graphic design as a core strategic business competency in a highly competitive climate, and they are challenging their in-house designers to supply far more than a service or support function. Their new role is to provide sound solutions to real-world business pressures. Managing Corporate Design addresses--head-on--these new challenges in a highly practical manner.

Peter L. Phillips writes specifically to corporate in-house graphic design groups searching for positive, accessible methods to better establish their group as a core strategic business competency. This guide covers:

Developing a framework
Assessing the value you offer
Recognizing the business role of design
Communicating in a corporate language
Gaining and forming business relationships
Developing design briefs and approval presentations
Managing and hiring staff
Incorporating creativity
Overcoming obstacles and moving forward!

These fresh strategies and more provide actionable tools for helping corporate design teams meet the new business demands of today.
