Research on the CEE region's corporate design maturity
The use of design in business can facilitate strategic development processes, mediate between interdisciplinary teams, and improve business performance. MOME Innovation Center has set the goal to assess the role and future of design in CEE’s largest companies.

International research suggests that there is a strong correlation between a company's business performance and its design maturity. At MOME Innovation Center, we feel it is our task to provide an authentic source of insight into how the attitude of companies towards design is developing and changing, and what results design-oriented thinking is leading to.

This is why we are conducting our corporate design survey for the second time. Last year we conducted the survey Hungary only. This time, however, we are raising the stakes and extending the research to other CEE countries to explore regional differences.
