In the current economic climate, where resources for innovation are scarce, design and other non-technological innovation drivers, such as organizational development, employee involvement and branding, become particularly relevant. They often are less capital intensive and have shorter payback periods than, for example technological research, but still have the potential to drive competitiveness. […] It is particularly important to ﬁnd new ways to promote innovation in SMEs in low-tech sectors and regions dominated by low-tech industry—where an in-house R&D department may seem too big an investment—as well as in private and public services.
Exploring the future is the job more typically associated with advance design: the further the time axis shifts, the more it is necessary to bring speciﬁc visionary capacities into play and the more we move away from contingent problems to the investigation of possible worlds. In actual fact, as we have been able to highlight, exploring the future is just one of the ways of intending advance design which, more speciﬁcally, has to do with the ability to develop new visions, or to generate a shift, which does not necessarily have to be projected in time.
