Abstract

The aim of this paper is to explore the potentials of a design management approach in contributing to solving the contradictions we claim to reflect Finnish metals and engineering industry culture and which might prevent them fully benefiting from user experience orientation as their new competitive advantage. To this end, we empirically study three case companies' selected user experience -related efforts from design management perspective by applying a framework proposed by Borja De Mozota. We discuss the results from the potentials perspective and suggest some future avenues of research.
