Business has professionalised its ability to recreate, extend and communicate value through management of the supply side of the market economy, but at the expense of its ability to identify and create new forms of value by managing the demand side. Design enables businesses to create new value by identifying and supplying for demand that remains hidden.
To harness the power of design to manage demand, an organisation must focus on four key objectives:
1 / Identify hidden demand. Learn to discover and specify demand that remains hidden to the competition.
2 / Design for demand. Develop and envision solutions that solve for the newly specified demand and improve the experience of the desired audience.
3 / Design supply systems that serve demand. Envision an operational business system that would enable the improved experience to be delivered consistently and repeatedly.
4 / Validate the design. Prototype and test the design in real or simulated contexts with real users to validate that the designed user experience satisfies the demand principles, and that the business system enables the designed user experience.
Supply and demand are the yin and yang of the market economy. When managed independent of each other, each experiences finite ability to create growth and prosperity. Managed as interdependent, supply management and demand management give rise to each other unlocking endless renewal and growth in the economy while enabling companies to achieve heightened and sustainable levels of growth, profit, differentiation, agility, and innovation.
