No. 1. The Disruptive Thinker: According to the all-new Thinkers50 ranking made public today, the most influential living management thinker in the world is Professor Clayton Christensen of Harvard Business School. Christensen, the originator of the theory of disruptive innovation and author of best-selling books including The Innovator’s Dilemma, tops the list for the second time running – an achievement matched only by management legends Peter Drucker and CK Prahalad.

How MOOCs Will Revolutionize Corporate Learning And Development | eLearning | Scoop.it

As MOOCs storm the academic world, the public discussion of their impact is ignoring what could become their most valuable application. Far from being limited to higher education reform, the new learning style’s most important legacy could be its impact on the world of corporate training – which is a $150 billion industry.

Debbie Ruston - The Success Educator's curator insight, November 4, 2013 11:56 AM

As we learn from many examples throughout history, like the steamship example shared,  when change is happening, it is generally resisted by the masses, but as we know from innovative changes throughout history, once people experience the benefits of something new, it reduces the reliance on the "old ways".

Caroline Wood's curator insight, November 4, 2013 3:15 PM

There are a lot of floor in these arguments but the use of on-line resources must definitely now be a part of education models. I just don 't believe it will replace class room experience, only enhance it. The example of Harvard in this article is definitely a casing point.
