The European House of Design Management (EHDM) was a three-year collaborative project running from November 2012 to September 2015, co-funded by the European Commission. It was one of six pilot projects funded by the First Action Plan of the European Design Innovation Initiative.

EHDM’s aim is to encourage the use of design thinking, design methods and commissioning of design specialists in public service projects across Europe. It does this by showing public sector organisations how to use design management thinking and methods currently used by leading companies in the private sector.

The outcome from EHDM is now live and available free to use online. It is called Shape Better Services and is available by clicking here:
