Disruptive Technology

Paper 0041-2b, PDF, 68 kb

Disruptive Technology is a term first used by Clayton Christensen of Harvard Business School in his book The Innovator's Dilemma published in 1997.  His insights allowed for a new perspective with regards new technology and the effect it can have on incumbent technologies.  We take a position of proactivity from the standpoint of the technologists and explore how technology based companies might leverage disruptive technologies to significant advantage.  It is, from our perspective, the single most worthy pursuit of any company determined to grow and thrive.
