The main purpose of this paper is to introduce the latest research on managing innovation - this is the term given by British Standards Institution to design management (of products and services that cannot exist now) for three product generations ahead. It was found that it does appear to be possible to set up procedures to plan long-term products and services for more than ten years ahead but only the very best organizations are doing it. The new British Standard (BS 7000 Part 1, 1999) that emanates from this research is also discussed.

Initially, this paper looks at the growth over the past 20 years of what is covered by design and its management, and the links between design management and strategic management. The natural extension of this is Innovation Management.
