Disruption guru Christensen: Why Apple, Tesla, VCs, academia may die

Disruption guru Christensen: Why Apple, Tesla, VCs, academia may die | disrupt it | Scoop.it

"Harvard business professor Clayton Christensen literally wrote the book on technology disruption, and he thinks Apple, Tesla Motors, venture capitalists and most of the nation’s colleges and universities should be afraid.


The author of The Innovator’s Dilemma said Wednesday that all of them could be killed by less advanced competitors in the same way that many once dominant technology companies have been in the past."

Neuromorphic computing: The machine of a new soul | The Economist | disrupt it | Scoop.it

ANALOGIES change. Once, it was fashionable to describe the brain as being like the hydraulic systems employed to create pleasing fountains for 17th-century aristocrats’ gardens. As technology moved on, first the telegraph network and then the telephone exchange became the metaphor of choice. Now it is the turn of the computer. But though the brain-as-computer is, indeed, only a metaphor, one group of scientists would like to stand that metaphor on its head. Instead of thinking of brains as being like computers, they wish to make computers more like brains. This way, they believe, humanity will end up not only with a better understanding of how the brain works, but also with better, smarter computers.

Healthcare's Trillion-Dollar Disruption

Healthcare's Trillion-Dollar Disruption | disrupt it | Scoop.it

"The changes the industry faces will be neither smooth nor linear. A period of intense turbulence will produce more losers and winners than any industry transformation in recent memory. Cross-industry competition (healthcare versus retail versus technology versus others) will erase traditional boundaries and generate exciting new value propositions for patients, payers, and physicians."

Consulting on the Cusp of Disruption

We have come to the conclusion that the same forces that disrupted so many businesses, from steel to publishing, are starting to reshape the world of consulting. The implications for firms and their clients are significant. The pattern of industry disruption is familiar: New competitors with new business models arrive; incumbents choose to ignore the new players or to flee to higher-margin activities; a disrupter whose product was once barely good enough achieves a level of quality acceptable to the broad middle of the market, undermining the position of longtime leaders and often causing the “flip” to a new basis of competition.

Depending on the average age of the people with whom you try this trick, you are likely to get airplanes, cars, Google, iPods, and similar usual suspects. Smart alecks will cite the Pet Rock, of course. But if you can keep the conversation going a while, the exercise is incredibly instructive.

"In my role introducing patient relationship management systems, I’ve had the opportunity to speak with and observe many “Innovation” organizations that have been set up in virtually every health system in the country (and most health plans and pharma as well). The innovation groups have been established to respond to the daunting changes their organizations are facing. Unfortunately, the way they are being setup are practically guaranteeing they will fail to prepare organizations for healthcare’s trillion dollar disruption."
