Overview

“By putting the empowerment of people at the center of strategy creation, Predictable Magic is as much a book about values and leadership as it is about design. It can help executives find meaning and value in their work as they create meaning and value for their consumers.”

–Dr. Marshall Goldsmith, world-renowned executive coach; author, The New York Times bestsellers, MOJO and What Got You Here Won’t Get You There

“While every company strives to create products and services that dazzle, few achieve this feat. Prahalad and Sawhney lay out a simple but powerful methodology for turning deep consumer insights into attention-grabbing, expectation-defying designs. If you’re looking to increase the ‘magic quotient’ in the things your company makes and sells, you’ll want to dig into Predictable Magic.”

–Dr. Gary Hamel, Visiting Professor, London Business School; author, The Future of Management and Leading the Revolution

Predictable Magic outlines an important framework to capture and define the emotional wants and needs of a user.”

–Ken Musgrave, IDSA, Director, Experience Design, Dell

“Prahalad and Sawhney shine a light on an important piece of the strategic puzzle: how to convert consumer emotions into successful designs. They provide a rigorous approach to guide innovation efforts from strategy creation through execution. This is a must-read for anyone who is trying to create a new product or develop a new business model.”

–Dr. Vijay Govindarajan, Professor, Tuck School of Business; Chief Innovation Consultant, GE; author, Ten Rules for Strategic Innovators
