Corporations who understand the essence of design can make a huge profit. Most companies barely scratch the surface of what design can deliver to their bottom line, while corporations that do understand how to leverage design create sustainable progress.

In 2010, the firm’s value surpassed that of Microsoft and the value of their design effort represents eighty billion dollars of the company’s current two hundred and forty billion dollar valuation.
“Profit from Design,” teaches your team how to simplify their job while outperforming their peers by using repeatable metrics that match nine Design Quality Criteria linked to a product’s innovation characteristics.
The book also tells you how to integrate design criteria into business plans and portfolio management up front, these cutting edge scientific methods then establish and translate strategic opportunities into inspirational design briefs and new superior concepts.

"Søren Petersen brings a rich portfolio of design-in-business experience to the issues at hand. Driven by frustration with endless design-concept-politics he entered the Center for Design Research program at Stanford University to "get quantitative." Mission impossible? No, through diligence and insight he has forged a system of metrics that can improve design performance. Try them." Larry
