Read full description of the books The Innovator's Solution:It took me a while, but worth finally persevering to the end. This isn't your typical business book, with a few nice aphorisms and over and done with in a couple of hours. No, this is a tightly argued guide to repeated disruptive innovation. And its not easy, in fact, Christensen even admits that he knows of only a handful of businesses that have achieved it, and a large part of their success came from the influence of their founders. The suggestions he makes does, however, suggest an explanation for why so few businesses have managed it - it is incredibly difficult, and involves winning at two very different strategies simultaneously. On the good side, it suggests some ways to possibly escape the dilemma, on the bad for me side, disruption is a lot more likely to come from outsiders rather than incumbents, no matter how clear it is that the industry is in the middle o a shake down.
