Innovation Management Guru | Bestselling Author
Clayton Christensen says outstanding companies can do everything right and still lose their market leadership, or worse, disappear completely, when launching a new and innovative product. Having spent his career developing his “disruption innovation theory,” Christensen believes innovation can be a predictable process that delivers sustainable, profitable growth, and offers frameworks to help leaders create the right conditions, at the right time, for new ideas to succeed on the marketplace.
Christensen is a professor of business administration at the Harvard Business School, with a joint appointment in the technology and operations management and general management faculty groups.
He has served as a director on the boards of a number of public and private companies, and is currently a board member at Tata Consulting Services, Franklin Covey, W.R. Hambrecht, and Vanu Incorporated. He also serves on Singapore’s Research, Innovation and Enterprise Council, and has advised the executives of many of the world’s major corporations.
He is the author of five bestselling books, including The Innovator’s Dilemma, The Innovator’s Solution, Seeing What’s Next, Disrupting Class and The Innovator’s Prescription.
