The late business scholar Clayton Christensen was the first to define disruptive innovation. Early in 2020 – in possibly his final consideration of the concept he originated – Christensen spoke with his frequent co-author Karen Dillon in an interview published in the MIT Sloan Management Review. Christensen, who died on January 23, 2020 at age 67, explained that disruptive innovations aren’t exotic, visionary revelations that revolutionize business. Instead, they are deceptively simple, straightforward products and services that change industries. His reflections will help you shape the future of your company as you anticipate and respond to what your rivals might do.
