Trends that recognised Design as a Core Competency in Creating a Sustainable Corporate Advantage

Trends, according to the Joziasse, that caused design going beyond merely estethics and/or decoration in becoming a source for gaining sustainable competitive advantage were supposed to be:
+ design as a core competency
+ integration of design into the business world
+ design management and planning as a focus for consultancies
+ the merging of business and design education.

The consequence was that some prospect corporations have developed design as a continuous element of corporate strategy.  And out of that is the claim that sustained design strategy allows companies to take leadership positions in their sectors.
