Description Until now, the literature on innovation has focused either on radical innovation pushed by technology or incremental innovation pulled by the market. How to Compete by Radically Innovating the Meaning of Products, Roberto Verganti introduces a third strategy, a radical shift in perspective that introduces a bold new way of competing.

Design-driven innovations do not come from the market; they create new markets. They don’t push new technologies; they push new meanings. It’s about having a vision, and taking that vision to your customers. Think of game-changers like Nintendo’s Wii or Apple’s iPod. They overturned our understanding of what a video game means and how we listen to music.

Customers had not asked for these new meanings, but once they experienced them, it was love at first sight. But where does the vision come from? With fascinating examples from leading European and American companies, Verganti shows that for truly breakthrough products and services, we must look beyond customers and users to those he calls “interpreters” – the experts who deeply understand and shape the markets they work in.

Design-Driven Innovation offers a provocative new view of innovation thinking and practice.

One of the Best Innovation and Design Books of Verganti suggests that companies form relationships with “interpreters”–individuals and organizations looking at settings similar to the one in which the company’s products would be used. Verganti, it might be said, if life imitates art, corporate life should imitate the making of art.

Verganti’s advice, it may take a while, but your competition will be left wondering how it was you managed to redefine and capture their business”. In it Verganti attacks one of the central mysteries of innovation–how can a company successfully create a product that is a radical break from the past, and which shows the way to a new future?

Roberto Verganti, in his new book, Design-Driven Innovation, argues that there is a “Third Way of Innovation,” driven by meaning, or to be more precise, by those cultural “interpreters” who have the ability to “make sense of things” and give existing things new meaning — and thus create new markets.
