At highly driven design companies they have a differentiation strategy where design is at their core. Those kinds of companies are market leaders’ trough design innovation. This is reflected in the non-technological innovations that are first-to-market in opposition to the so called me-to innovations where design innovation is copied by followers. +Gert L. Kootstra
