Peter Drucker is one of my all time favorites. I'm not sure a product that perfectly communicates to ideal customers can compel people to buy to the point of being self evident. That seems a stretch to me. 


I do understand that product design that includes the customer early on will meet their needs better than one that' just thrown out there and hopes to satisfy. However a vast majority of product managers and product designers don't use design principles like that. Think Facebook and Apple. They are market leaders and their products do sell themselves, but not because company leadership and management goes out of their way to find out what their customers want. 


Quite the contrary. When they release new products or upgrades, they essentially ram it down your throat and their customers accept is as good. Or, if they don't initially accept it as good, the features are generally not unuseful and they grow to like them or even love them, almost by brute force. Almost by manipulation. Cultural manipulation. Societal manipulation. 


Or is that the new definition of marketing and market leadership in the year 2014? 


What are your thoughts?

A great way to visualise your market, especially when you are trying to innovate and targeting bits of existing markets

Joanne Brooks's curator insight, November 16, 2013 7:17 PM
Today most startups are trying to ressegment existing markets or create new markets. How do you diagram that? What if the basis of competition in market creation is really the intersection of multiple existing markets? Or what if the markets may not exist and you are creating one? Today it's all about being visual.

MIT: 10 Breakthrough Technologies 2013 you should know about

MIT: 10 Breakthrough Technologies 2013 you should know about | Futuring | Scoop.it

MIT's definition of a breakthrough is simple: an advance that gives people powerful new ways to use technology. It could be an intuitive design that provides a useful interface (e.g., “Smart Watches”) or experimental devices that could allow people who have suffered brain damage to once again form memories (“Memory Implants”). Some could be key to sustainable economic growth (“Additive Manufacturing” and “Supergrids”), while others could change how we communicate (“Temporary Social Media”) or think about the unborn (“Prenatal DNA Sequencing”). Some are brilliant feats of engineering (“Baxter”), whereas others stem from attempts to rethink longstanding problems in their fields (“Deep Learning” and “Ultra-Efficient Solar Power”). As a whole, this annual list not only tells you which technologies you need to know about, but also celebrates the creativity that produced them.

Student's are not making the investment...my father-in-law always said, "you get what you pay for and you take care of those things you spend your money on".  Free is cheap and I have no ownership; it is disposable and unimportant; and I do not need to invest my time in it, I have nothing to lose.  But I am not saying the higher education should cost a ton either, but make it a real investment.  Otherwise we are going to have students who drop out of free classes only to feel crushed by the notion they can't cut it in higher education.  We need to make education affordable; hold students accountable for their part of the learning experience; hold institutions and their faculty to higher standards; and help students find the right techniques for their learning style to be successful.  Cheap or free is not the answer to a system that needs to change the way it does business to match the changes in the environment without sacrificing quality!
