“An idea that is disruptive to one business may be sustaining to another. Given the stark odds that favor the incumbents in the sustaining race but entrants in disruptive ones, we recommend a strict rule: If your idea for a product or business appears disruptive to some established companies but might represent a sustaining improvement for others, then you should go back to the drawing board. You need to define an opportunity that is disruptive relative to all the established players in the targeted market or you should not invest in the idea. If it is a sustaining Innovation relative to the business model of a significant incumbent, you are picking a fight you are very unlikely to win.” #ClayQuote #TheInnovatorsSolution #DisruptiveInnovation #InspiredByClay

Many students of Clayton Christensen’s will be familiar with the US Steel case, which tells the story of the minimills’ low-end disruption, entering the market with rebar and then steadily moving up-market. In this episode of The Disruptive Voice, we highlight another great example of a low-end disruptor, @norsktitanium. The company’s CEO, Michael Canario, discusses Norsk’s humble beginnings in Norway; the many benefits of its innovative and enabling technology, Rapid Plasma Deposition; and how management is looking to the minimill playbook as it charts its course to higher ends of the market!

“Andy Jassy never had Clay as a teacher here, but he reached out to him when he came to campus in 2008 for a reunion, right around the time @amazon was launching @amazonwebservices. One of the many remarkable things about Clay was that, while he was one of the world’s busiest people, he always somehow seemed available when people needed to see him...” To read the full @harvardhbs news story, “From Harvard Business School to Amazon: A Q&A with Derek van Bever on His Conversation with Andy Jassy”, visit the link in our profile! #InspiredByClay #AWS #MarketCreatingInnovation #DisruptiveInnovation

Weise, PhD recently joined us on The Disruptive Voice to discuss her career over the last decade, which has concentrated on preparing working-age adults for the jobs of both today and tomorrow, along with her newly-published book, “Long Life Learning: Preparing for Jobs That Don’t Even Exist Yet.” She takes listeners on a journey from considerations of our current system of education and learners’ engagement with the labor market to designing and building a learning ecosystem that better meets the needs of all of us, the future’s working learners.

The Disruptive Innovation @hbsexeced course may look a little different this year but some things remain unchanged: 1) We’re thrilled to welcome these professionals to our Forum community and 2) These wise words from Derek van Bever - “You came here as students but you’ll leave here as teachers.” #DisruptiveInnovation #InspiredByClay @harvardhbs

“Was Quibi a great idea that went bad because the conditions under which people might consume this particular service are less prevalent now (due to the pandemic)? Or was there something more fundamentally challenged with their approach? As we reviewed this as a current event in class, it covered an incredibly interesting range of our frameworks in BSSE.” - Chet Huber, in this newly-released Current Events Through The Lens of Theory video.

In 2019, The Forum for Growth & Innovation team traveled to North Carolina to meet with our friends at @atriumhealth’s Innovation Engine, specifically, to learn more about how they’d brought the language and learnings from @hbsexeced’s Disruptive Innovation course home to their organization. This interview with @drjeanwright_ , the former Chief Innovation Officer at Atrium, was originally recorded as research material for The Forum, helping the team to develop a case study of disruption in the healthcare industry. However, it’s such a compelling conversation that we want to share it with you as well!

Remember when Clay & Intel’s Andy Grove were on the cover of Forbes? From that article, “According to Clayton Christensen, disruptive technologies are simple, convenient-to-use innovations that initially are used only by the unsophisticated customers at the low end of markets.” #DisruptiveInnovation #LowEndDisruption #Technology #Innovation #InspiredByClay

“Companies that target their products at the circumstances in which customers find themselves, rather than at the customers themselves, are those that can launch predictably successful products. Put another way, the critical unit of analysis is the circumstance and not the customer.” #ClayQuote #InspiredByClay #InnovatorsSolution
