    Genuinely insightful and applicable. Goes beyond generalized aphorisms. Effectively illustrates the integrated nature of customer, product/service, price, and value.

    Ok. I need to update this review. 8 Stars is appropriate. In my 35 year career, only 2, or perhaps 3 other serious writings have created such a profound challenge to my mindset and mental processes.

    A long parade of business writings that are nothing than gross exercises in egotistical chest thumping has made me deeply skeptical of the entire genre. This book is so marked up with page flags and highlights that I am ready to study it again. Now.

    Research and development (known colloquially as R&D) is an inevitability of capitalist markets. New innovations usually outpace yesterday’s technologies. However, many R&D products fail to transition from development to the marketplace. In this work, Ramanujam and Tacke suggest that many of the failures can be avoided by proper management of pricing prior to the start of the project. In truth, this work is an in depth look at how to set the price of an innovation.

    The authors set up several common pitfalls in deploying research as well as specific principles that lead to success. They ground their work in success stories of several companies across a variety of industries. They detail these use cases in the second half of this work. Each chapter also provides accessible summaries along with several “CEO Questions” to address C suite accountability.

    The central insight the authors seek to posit is to put pricing early in the development process. This requires some market research (especially customer feedback) and the involvement of distribution teams (like marketing and sales). Early pricing also requires teams to prioritize customer driven requests – development from the “outside in” instead of from the “inside out.” Finally, this practice requires a bit of courage to say “no” to bad ideas.

    The authors unfortunately do not address non profit centers of innovation like research universities. They face many of the same problems to implement innovations, but have less infrastructure to derive revenue and profit. What’s , their innovations are often grounded in basic science than current practice. This makes pricing, in terms of both structure and a dollar figure, even difficult due to a lack of information about potential markets. By examining this common use case, the authors could have made their theory general while addressing a significant new audience.

    For these reasons, the authors limit their potential audience to those within the business community, especially managers of research, researchers, and the C suite. The size and age of the company does not matter: Large companies and lean innovators can both benefit, as can established companies and start ups. More generally, this book is for anyone dealing with pricing from R&D. Sustaining revenue and profit in tomorrow’s conditions requires thoughtful and deliberate work. This work will shine the light on the steps required to succeed.

    Whether you build physical products, digital product and/or services your business growth by generating revenue. In order to do that you need to “price” your products. Most of us have, as this book clearly point out in the beginning, always left pricing to the very end, and lets be honest, mostly to chance.

    This book will flip your mental model of how you build and price products.

    Whether you are a Product Manager, in Sales, Marketing or the CEO of a company, this book is a MUST READ!

    I lead the Product team for a small SaaS company that’s been around for nearly two decades. We’re the market share leader in a niche industry, however, we have an outdated business/pricing model. Monetizing Innovation has really highlighted some gaps and opportunities to grow revenue/profit. I’m hoping this book will be the spark that ignites our transition to become a profit driven product organization. Read it or listen to it. You’ll be glad you did. I’ve been listening to it on my ride to work in the morning and it’s been the perfect mix of insights and inspiration.

    As a former startup founder now working on the sales frontline for a growing Saas startup, Monetizing Innovation really hit home with me.

    To an extent, Madhavan tells entrepreneurs what we all know to be true (when it comes to conceiving and building products and companies), but his use of real anecdotes drives the point home.

    You'll find yourself thinking about how to apply these teachings to your own company from beginning to end. Strongly recommend this one.


  6. says:

    Fantastic book that takes the complicated topic of pricing and makes it accessible and actionable to anyone on any budget. Couldn't agree on the authors main point that pricing needs to be part of the upfront product discovery research and not an afterthought after the product has been built. If all product teams followed the authors advice, a lot products would achieve their business cases.


  7. says:

    Monetizing Innovation is way than a pricing book.

    As an instructor for Pragmatic Marketing I teach companies how to innovate. As a pricing expert I teach and coach companies on pricing concepts. Madhavan has done a fantastic job at combining both of these topics.

    Sure, after you have an innovation you have to price it. But the real magic is creating the innovation that buyers would be willing to pay for.

    I especially like the examples he sprinkles throughout his book. I highly recommend this book to anybody who is trying to create new products.


  8. says:

    Really insightful book with a radical approach to pricing new products. Highly recommended for anyone in business, not just those thinking about developing new products.


  9. says:

    Reading this book has advanced my learning as a product manager by a couple of notches. Customer obsession is a given with most companies these days. But this book nicely lays out a framework that underpins working around the value that customers will seek from whatever you are building, a product, a service or any business for that matter. It is crucial to incorporate this framework right from the initial stages, rather than leave it as a pricing exercise for the later stages and the authors provide lots of examples from the recent past to illustrate this.


  10. says:

    One of the biggest regrets I have regarding buying books is this one. I can't understand why there are so many people praising it. There are so many counterexamples for nearly every advice the author gives. I hate to sound so rude but I can't find anything good to say.


  11. says:

    This book helps to everyone who wants sell a producto or service. Begining from the end to the start. Put a price, and look if you can sell, otherwise, iterate again, maybe this time not need to build the product or yes.
