Given their overwhelmingly positive take on the power of digital disruption, authors Larry Downes and Paul Nunes can sound like cheerleaders for Moore’s Law, which holds that the “processing power of the semiconductor” – that is, computer chips – will double in speed every 12 to 24 months.. They methodically discuss digital technology’s ability to disrupt businesses and transform economies, adding descriptions of change in several, highly varied industries. They also explain what “Big Bang Disruption” means for strategic decision making. getAbstract recommends their exploration of abrupt innovation to investors, entrepreneurs, and all those compelled by digital culture, innovation, planning or strategy.

In this book, you will learn

  • How innovation has changed
  • What “Big Bang Disruption” means for your business
  • What the new laws of innovation demand
  • How to survive in the contemporary innovation landscape
