Summary of Disrupt Yourself
Putting the Power of Disruptive Innovation to Work
Disruption doesn’t only happen to markets. You can disrupt yourself and your career.
Analyst Whitney Johnson applies Clayton Christensen’s concept of “disruptive innovation” to individual careers. She uses this idea to offer metaphorical lenses that allow you to see your career with new eyes. She provides useful advice on how to innovate and take responsibility for redefining your professional path. Johnson’s advice will help you innovate and take responsibility for defining your professional path. However, deliberately disrupting yourself could reshape your career, so your path may look quite different if you undertake her approach. getAbstract recommends her guidebook to readers interested in disruption, innovation and creativity, and to those seeking meaning in their work and new perspectives on their careers.
