Clay Christensen Responds, and Reflects, on all the Hoopla

By Craig Hatkoff and Irwin Kula, co-founders, Disruptor Foundation

As co-founders with Clay of the Disruptor Foundation, our mission is to raise awareness of and encourage the advancement of disruptive innovation theory and its’ application. Jill Lepore’s New Yorker article, and the river of commentary in its wake has certainly achieved a heightened level of awareness and engagement. That’s a good thing, because as Clay himself advocates in last week’s interview with Harvard Business Review editor Adi Ignatius: “the theory is a process, not an event. And the way you build a powerful body of understanding is to invite people use the ideas — find something the theory can’t explain — and it gets stronger.”

Hear it from Clay, in is own words, below, and join the ongoing discussion with us at the Disruptor Foundation.
