Named by Fast Company as one of the most influential leadership books in its Leadership Hall of Fame. An innovation classic. From Steve Jobs to Jeff Bezos, Clay Christensen’s work continues to underpin today’s most innovative leaders and organizations.The bestselling classic on disruptive innovation, by renowned author Clayton M. Christensen.His work is cited by the world’s best-known thought leaders, from Steve Jobs to Malcolm Gladwell. In this classic bestsellerone of the most influential business books of all timeinnovation expert Clayton Christensen shows how even the most outstanding companies can do everything rightyet still lose market leadership.Christensen explains why most companies miss out on new waves of innovation. No matter the industry, he says, a successful company with established products will get pushed aside unless managers know how and when to abandon traditional business practices.Offering both successes and failures from leading companies as a guide, The Innovator’s Dilemma gives you a set of rules for capitalizing on the phenomenon of disruptive innovation.Sharp, cogent, and provocativeand consistently noted as one of the most valuable business ideas of all timeThe Innovator’s Dilemma is the book no manager, leader, or entrepreneur should be without.
In the bestseller The Innovator's Dilemma, the author exposed the Achilles' heel of many companies: by ignoring the disruptive technologies that evolve to displace them, they help initiate their own demise. In this book, he takes the idea of disruption one step further - explaining how companies can and should become disruptors themselves.
A generation ago, Clayton Christensen revolutionized business with his groundbreaking theory of disruption?a way to predict how competitors will respond to different types of innovation. In this book, Christensen and his coauthors examine the other side of the puzzle: what causes growth, and how to create it.After years of research, Christensen, Hall, Dillon, and Duncan show that the long-held maxim?that the crux of innovation is knowing more and more about the customer?is wrong. Customers don't simply buy products or services; they ?hire? them to do a job. Understanding customers does not drive innovation success. The key is understanding customers' Jobs to Be Done. The Jobs to Be Done approach can be seen in some of the world's most respected companies and fast-growing startups, including Amazon, Intuit, Uber, and Airbnb to name just a few.This book carefully lays down the authors' provocative framework, providing a comprehensive explanation of the theory, why it's predictive, and, most important, how to use it to improve innovation in the real world.
Offers managers and professionals the fundamental information they need to stay competitive in a fast-moving world.
In 2010 world-renowned innovation expert Clayton M. Christensen gave a powerful speech to the Harvard Business School's graduating class. Drawing upon his business research, he offered a series of guidelines for finding meaning and happiness in life. He used examples from his own experiences to explain how high achievers can all too often fall into traps that lead to unhappiness.The speech was memorable not only because it was deeply revealing but also because it came at a time of intense personal reflection: Christensen had just overcome the same type of cancer that had taken his father's life. As Christensen struggled with the disease, the question "How do you measure your life?" became more urgent and poignant, and he began to share his insights more widely with family, friends, and students. In this groundbreaking book, Christensen puts forth a series of questions: How can I be sure that I'll find satisfaction in my career? How can I be sure that my personalrelationships become enduring sources of happiness? How can I avoid compromising my integrity—and stay out of jail? Using lessons from some of the world's greatest businesses, he provides incredible insights into these challenging questions. How Will You Measure Your Life? is full of inspiration and wisdom, and will help students, midcareer professionals, and parents alike forge their own paths to fulfillment.

Every day, individuals take action based on how they believe innovation will change industries. Yet these beliefs are largely based on guesswork and incomplete data and lead to costly errors in judgment. Now, internationally renowned innovation expert Clayton M. Christensen and his research partners Scott D. Anthony and Erik A. Roth present a groundbreaking framework for predicting outcomes in the evolution of any industry. Based on proven theories outlined in Christensen's landmark books The Innovator's Dilemma and The Innovator's Solution, Seeing What's Next offers a practical, three-part model that helps decision-makers spot the signals of industry change, determine the outcome of competitive battles, and assess whether a firm's actions will ensure or threaten future success. Through in-depth case studies of industries from aviation to health care, the authors illustrate the predictive power of innovation theory in action.
