This book explores issues in the development of the creative industries in Singapore, with a particular focus on the design sector. It presents case study research into the experiences of design leaders transitioning to leadership positions in the context of the Asia Pacific ‘war for talents’ and Singapore’s drive to become the design hub in Asia. Three in-depth case studies are provided: the case of design managers, the case of design consultants and the case of design entrepreneurs. The case studies reveal complex, inter-related issues and ideals that participants desired of potential designers and future design leaders as part of their transition to design leadership and management roles. The empirical findings of the research led to the generation of a new theory of design leaders’ transition to design leadership and management positions in Singapore, providing a framework for design career and trajectory. This book is significant for design education in Singapore, as well as internationally, because it establishes design leaders’ expectations of designer career trajectories, and the need for a design leadership pipeline. It will be of particular interest to designers and design leaders/managers; educational researchers; curriculum developers; and graduate and postgraduate design students.

Erfolgreiche Unternehmen wie Apple oder dm überlassen nichts dem Zufall: Sie richten alles, was sie tun, bewusst und konsequent auf den Kunden aus. Dabei gestalten sie ihr Unternehmen so, dass es stets und überall vom Kunden erkannt und konsistent erlebt wird. Sie führen ihr Design, statt es nur nachgelagert einzusetzen. Manager und Führungskräfte müssen, wollen sie in der digitalen Transformation am Markt auf Dauer überleben, Design als strategisches Mittel verstehen, begreifen und einsetzen. Leading Design vermittelt die Hintergründe über das Warum und liefert Methoden und Prozesse, Design als Kernkompetenz im Unternehmen zu entwickeln und zu verankern. Viele Unternehmen suchen nach der Erfolgsformel von Apple: Was macht Apple anders und sichert so Erfolg und Rendite? Neben vielen Faktoren sticht eines für alle erkennbar heraus: Es ist die Konsequenz mit der Apple ein konsistentes Kundenerlebnis erzeugt. Sie führen das Design der Unternehmung strategisch, statt es nur nachgelagert, als Akt der Verschönerung, einzusetzen. Für sie ist Design die Strategie statt nur die Umsetzung. Leading Design beleuchtet was es braucht um ein Unternehmen so aufzustellen, dass Kunden begeistert reagieren, und liefert Methoden und Prozesse die Führungskräfte gezielt einsetzen können, Design umfassend als Strategie einzusetzen. Führungskräfte suchen nach der Formel, mit der sie ihr Unternehmen effektiver aufstellen können. Die Maßnahmen die zur Effizienz führen scheinen dabei an Wirkung zu verlieren: Kunden reagieren zusehends, und vorn der digitalen Transformation unterstützt, immer kritischer auf Angebote, Was Unternehmen brauchen ist eine umfassende und effektive Strategie, mit der sie alles was sie liefern bewusst auf den Kunden und das Erzeugen von konsistenten und herausragenden Angeboten ausrichten können. Leading Design vermittelt Führungskräften wichtige Einblicke, warum Design für sie das Mittel ist um Unternehmen effektiver aufzustellen, und liefert konkrete Methoden und Prozesse die sie nutzen können, Design umfassend zu führen.

"Creative ways of thinking about leadership are helpful to guide practice and personal growth. This book builds a strategic roadmap for creative leadership practice, putting the spotlight on a leader’s professional development journey in the process. The book is about leadership on the ground in higher education, where the ‘rubber hits the road’. It can also be useful in business, or for anyone wanting to think outside the square. Through a creative storytelling approach, the author takes the reader through Tuscany and her on-the-job experience as a leader of learning and teaching. Along the way, she explains some of the theoretical influences on her thinking and practice – in ways and combinations she hadn’t read about in other leadership books, or experienced in professional development programmes. Through real stories, the author shows how she made creative connections in building her own knowledge on present and past experience, with reflection on how practice can be improved with a clear focus on collegiality and strategic outcomes. This approach reflects the five creative leadership signposts that she explains and illustrates throughout the book. "

In dem respektlosen Stil, der Galloway zu einem der gefeiertsten Wirtschaftsprofessoren der Welt gemacht hat, zerlegt er die Strategien der Vier. Er führt vor, wie sie unsere grundlegenden emotionalen Bedürfnisse mit einer Schnelligkeit und in einem Ausmaß manipulieren, an die andere nicht herankommen. Und er zeigt, wie man die Lehren aus ihrem Aufstieg auf sein eigenes Unternehmen oder seinen eigenen Job anwenden kann. Ob man mit ihnen konkurrieren will, mit ihnen Geschäfte machen oder einfach in der Welt leben will, die von ihnen beherrscht wird – man muss die Vier verstehen.

The Design of Leadership Style

With the crisis of leadership in the western democracies, there has been a growth of interest in how leaders outside of the west emerge and consolidate their positions. This book analyses the communication strategies of six charismatic non-western leaders: Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Fidel Castro, Ayatollah Khomeini, Mohammed Mahathir and Lee Kuan Yew. The book addresses the following questions in order to arrive at a better understanding of communication and leadership: How do leaders communicate? Do leaders communicate more by words, or actions? Do leaders have unique communication strategies? Are leaders moral beings, or impostors? The book describes how each of these leaders designed a unique style that integrated verbal and non-verbal modes of communication. It argues that leadership style is performed through the cumulative interaction of non-verbal modes – dress, body language, physical possessions, symbols and symbolic actions – with verbal strategies for communicating visions, values and legitimacy. In order to understand how each of these leaders undertakes a dramatic ‘performance’ of leadership, Jonathan Charteris-Black uses Erving Goffman’s notion of ‘Front’. Noting the inherent similarities between the mutual dependency of actors with audiences and leaders with followers, the book suggests that leaders – like actors – use metaphors and symbols to satisfy followers’ psychological and symbolic needs and that leadership is communicated through impression management, metaphor and media choices. A fascinating and well executed study, this book will interest students and academics working on leadership, applied linguistics, communication studies and politics.
