The design-driven innovation theory, whose early research results have been introduced into China, is an extension of innovation dynamics models. In recent years, the theory has gained great development, its theoretical framework has been improved, and the ability to guide the practice of design innovation has been enhanced. Based on a brief review of early achievements, influences and main remaining problems, this paper introduces the development of basic concepts and the whole theoretical framework after the introduction of semiotics and evolutionary perspective, and reviews the research focusing on strategy, process, organizations and network theory. Especially it places emphasis on the research achievement and significance in the aspects of innovation dynamics, breakthrough meaning innovation, technology epiphany and so on. Then it summarizes future development trends.
