The innovator's dilemma : when new technologies cause great firms to fail by Clayton M Christensen( Book )
114 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 3,786 libraries worldwide
"This book takes the radical position that great companies can fail precisely because they do everything right." "It demonstrates why outstanding companies that had their competitive antennae up, listened astutely to customers, and invested aggressively in new technologies still lost their market leadership when confronted with disruptive changes in technology and market structure. And it tells how to avoid a similar fate." "Using the lessons of successes and failures of leading companies, The Innovator's Dilemma presents a set of rules for capitalizing on the phenomenon of disruptive innovation. These principles will help managers determine when it is right not to listen to customers, when to invest in developing lower-performance products that promise lower margins, and when to pursue small markets at the expense of seemingly larger and more lucrative ones."--Jacket
Disrupting class : how disruptive innovation will change the way the world learns by Clayton M Christensen( Book )
28 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and Chinese and held by 2,169 libraries worldwide
According to recent studies in neuroscience, the way we learn doesn't always match up with the way we are taught. If we hope to stay competitive-academically, economically, and technologically--we need to rethink our understanding of intelligence, reevaluate our educational system, and reinvigorate our commitment to learning. In other words, we need "disruptive innovation." Now, in his long-awaited new book, Clayton M. Christensen and coauthors Michael B. Horn and Curtis W. Johnson take one of the most important issues of our time--education--and apply Christensen's now-famous theories of "disruptive" change using a wide range of real-life examples. Whether you're a school administrator, government official, business leader, parent, teacher, or entrepreneur, you'll discover surprising new ideas, outside-the-box strategies, and straight-A success stories. You'll learn how customized learning will help many more students succeed in school; student-centric classrooms will increase the demand for new technology; computers must be disruptively deployed to every student; disruptive innovation can circumvent roadblocks that have prevented other attempts at school reform. We can compete in the global classroom--and get ahead in the global market.--From publisher description
The innovator's solution : creating and sustaining successful growth by Clayton M Christensen( Book )
33 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and Chinese and held by 1,624 libraries worldwide
"In his worldwide bestseller The Innovator's Dilemma, Christensen explained how industry leaders get blindsided by disruptive innovations precisely because they focus too closely on their most profitable customers and businesses. The Innovator's Solution shows how companies get to the side of this dilemma, creating disruptions rather than being destroyed by them." "Drawing on years of in-depth research and illustrated by company examples across many industries, Christensen and Raynor argue that innovation can be a predictable process that delivers sustainable, profitable growth. They identify the forces that cause managers to make bad decisions as they package and shape new ideas - and offer new frameworks to help managers create the right conditions, at the right time, for a disruption to succeed." "Revealing counterintuitive insights that will change your perspective on innovation forever, this landmark book shows how to create a disruptive growth engine that fuels ongoing success."--Jacket
