When Clayton Christensen’s book The Innovator’s Dilemma came out in 1997, it disrupted the business world and became an instant classic, named by the Economist as one of the six most important books about business ever written. In it, the Harvard professor explained how and why new competitors could come seemingly out of nowhere and cause leading companies to fail. Join us as “the World’s Most Influential Business Management Thinker” discusses his ground-breaking ideas, including how to apply disruptive innovation to companies, countries, and even our personal lives, with Intuit Cofounder and Chair Scott Cook.
In nearly a dozen books and more than a hundred articles, award-winning Christensen has applied his theory of disruptive innovation to a range of industries and institutions, including healthcare and education, demonstrating how to remain competitive in a quickly changing world. His upcoming book, Prosperity Paradox, tackles the challenge of economic development, asking why, despite billions of dollars in investment over decades, so many investments fail to generate sustainable prosperity. The solution? A new, sustainable framework based on entrepreneurship and market-creating innovation to help lift nations out of poverty.
