Smart Design

(Disruptive Innovation)

Rules and Guidelines

Smart Design is a thinking competition that is geared towards the

augmentation of disruptive innovation to daily simple and mundane things. It is
aimed to hone Management students to think critically and make uncommon
innovation; to see in a new light common and ordinary things. It is also vital for
practicing the problem diagnosis and decision evaluation ability of each participant.
Participants are expected to showcase and apply their knowledge on different
management concepts to improve the Innovation Object. Each Disruptively
Innovative Piece (Smart Design) is also expected to possess significant societal
impact. Disruptive Innovation is the kind of innovation that creates market and
value network and eventually disrupts an existing market and value networks,
displacing market leading firms, products, and alliances.

cause and effect
You may also focus and zoom-in in a single problem point
Innovate, and produce alternatives
Control and evaluate innovation
Demonstrate and apply
