However, even if the motivation that market induces is at its strongest, it cannot lead to imagineering in the case of latent demand, that is where users have not yet been able to imagine new possibilities. Even if the market cannot resolve contradictions, it certainly determines which trade-oﬀs or contradictions are most important (Da Silveira and Slack, 2001). But one could go further than that – the market actually creates the incongruence that can be phrased as contradictions. The incongruence is created for example when the relative price of a production factor changes (Ahmad, 1966) or when income changes (Schmookler, 1966).
Drucker (1985) developed a classiﬁcation of the sources of innovation and entrepreneurship, and six of the eight sources he mentions cause or create incongruence and lead to imagineering. To deal with incongruence, agents are forced to examine their mental constructs and make their assumptions explicit. Argyris (1980) refers to these assumptions as the ‘undiscussables’ and they constrain learning and imagineering for as long as they are hidden. If the agent wants to learn and ‘imagineer’, he must ﬁnd the assumptions that reinforce the incongruence and use these assumptions as a launching pad from which to make leaps of conjecture.
