The innovator's dilemma : when new technologies cause great firms to fail by Clayton M Christensen( Book )

74 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in English and Italian and held by 2,893 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book takes the radical position that great companies can fail precisely because they do everything right." "It demonstrates why outstanding companies that had their competitive antennae up, listened astutely to customers, and invested aggressively in new technologies still lost their market leadership when confronted with disruptive changes in technology and market structure. And it tells how to avoid a similar fate." "Using the lessons of successes and failures of leading companies, The Innovator's Dilemma presents a set of rules for capitalizing on the phenomenon of disruptive innovation. These principles will help managers determine when it is right not to listen to customers, when to invest in developing lower-performance products that promise lower margins, and when to pursue small markets at the expense of seemingly larger and more lucrative ones."--Jacket
Disrupting class : how disruptive innovation will change the way the world learns by Clayton M Christensen( Book )

38 editions published between 2008 and 2017 in English and held by 2,314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

According to recent studies in neuroscience, the way we learn doesn't always match up with the way we are taught. If we hope to stay competitive-academically, economically, and technologically--we need to rethink our understanding of intelligence, reevaluate our educational system, and reinvigorate our commitment to learning. In other words, we need "disruptive innovation." Now, in his long-awaited new book, Clayton M. Christensen and coauthors Michael B. Horn and Curtis W. Johnson take one of the most important issues of our time--education--and apply Christensen's now-famous theories of "disruptive" change using a wide range of real-life examples. Whether you're a school administrator, government official, business leader, parent, teacher, or entrepreneur, you'll discover surprising new ideas, outside-the-box strategies, and straight-A success stories. You'll learn how customized learning will help many more students succeed in school; student-centric classrooms will increase the demand for new technology; computers must be disruptively deployed to every student; disruptive innovation can circumvent roadblocks that have prevented other attempts at school reform. We can compete in the global classroom--and get ahead in the global market.--From publisher description
The innovator's solution : creating and sustaining successful growth by Clayton M Christensen( Book )

45 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and held by 1,756 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In his worldwide bestseller The Innovator's Dilemma, Christensen explained how industry leaders get blindsided by disruptive innovations precisely because they focus too closely on their most profitable customers and businesses. The Innovator's Solution shows how companies get to the side of this dilemma, creating disruptions rather than being destroyed by them." "Drawing on years of in-depth research and illustrated by company examples across many industries, Christensen and Raynor argue that innovation can be a predictable process that delivers sustainable, profitable growth. They identify the forces that cause managers to make bad decisions as they package and shape new ideas - and offer new frameworks to help managers create the right conditions, at the right time, for a disruption to succeed." "Revealing counterintuitive insights that will change your perspective on innovation forever, this landmark book shows how to create a disruptive growth engine that fuels ongoing success."--BOOK JACKET

This work offers a hopeful vision to show universities how they can become more innovative, efficient, and true to their mission. It shows how higher education can respond to the forces of disruptive innovation that they are currently facing. The authors offer an analysis of where the traditional university and its traditions have come from and how it needs to change for the future. Through an examination of Harvard and Brigham Young University, Idaho as well as other stories of innovation in higher education, they decipher how universities can find innovative, less costly ways of performing their uniquely valuable functions. The book offers new ways forward to deal with curriculum, faculty issues, enrollment, retention, graduation rates, campus facility usage, and a host of other urgent issues in higher education. It discusses a strategic model to ensure economic vitality at the traditional university. It contains novel insights into the kind of change that is necessary to move institutions of higher education forward in innovative ways. To avoid the pitfalls of disruption and turn the scenario into a positive and productive one, universities must re-engineer their institutional DNA from the inside out.

"Some people are just natural innovators, right? With no apparent effort, they discover ideas for new products, services, and entire businesses. It may look like innovators are born, not made. But according to Jeffrey Dyer and Hal Gregersen, anyone can become more innovative. How? Master the discovery skills that distinguish innovative entrepreneurs and executives from ordinary managers. In The Innovator's DNA, the authors identify five capabilities demonstrated by the best innovators: ʺ Associating: drawing connections between questions, problems, or ideas from unrelated fields ʺ Questioning: posing queries that challenge common wisdom ʺ Observing: scrutinizing the behavior of customers, suppliers, and competitors to identify new ways of doing things ʺ Experimenting: constructing interactive experiences and provoking unorthodox responses to see what insights emerge ʺ Networking: meeting people with different ideas and perspectives The authors explain how to generate ideas with these skills, collaborate with "delivery-driven" colleagues to implement ideas, and build innovation skills throughout your organization to sharpen its competitive edge. They also provide a self-assessment for rating your own innovator's DNA. Practical and provocative, this book is an essential resource for all teams seeking to strengthen their innovative prowess"--Provided by publisher
Blended : using disruptive innovation to improve schools by Michael B Horn( )

17 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and held by 669 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Educators, parents, and students are approaching the tipping point in a digital transformation that will forever change the way the world learns. If online learning has not already rocked your local school, then it will soon. Michael Horn and his" Disrupting Class" collaborators made that prediction in 2008 when they calculated that by 2019, 50% of high school courses would be online in some form or fashion. Years later, that prediction continues to appear accurate, if not conservative. People may debate the timing, but the more important question is how to channel the indisputable emergence of online learning across elementary, middle, and high schools into a positive force that makes life better for students and their teachers. How can leaders unlock the benefits of online learning and mitigate the risks? Five years after the first publication of "Disrupting Class," the field is ready for a companion guide that provides the "how to" guidance for which educators are clamoring. This book will help leaders, teachers, and other stakeholders interested in a more student-centered system understand how to begin. It provides a step-by-step framework, responsive to the frequently asked questions from education leaders who are trying to implement blended learning. The goal is for every reader to have the necessary expertise to go forth with confidence and build the next generation of K-12 learning environments

60 editions published between 1995 and 2018 in 8 languages and held by 539 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unternehmen scheitern aus vielen Gründen. Dass führende Unternehmen aber scheitern, weil sie im Grunde alles richtig machen, klingt paradox. Und doch erweisen sich die klassischen Erfolgsfaktoren wie Kunden-, Ertrags- und Wachstumsorientierung bei disruptiven Innovationen als geradezu gefährlich und existenzbedrohend. Anhand von erfolgreichen und missglückten Beispielen von führenden Unternehmen präsentiert Ihnen dieses Buch Regeln für einen erfolgreichen Umgang mit dem Phänomen bahnbrechender Innovationen. Diese Regeln werden Managern helfen zu entscheiden, wann es sinnvoll ist, nicht auf bestehende Kunden zu hören, in weniger leistungsfähige Produkte mit geringen Margen zu investieren oder in noch kleine, aber wachstumsstarke Marktsegmente zu stoßen. Das Buch zeigt die>>Unlogik<<von disruptiven Innovationen auf und will zugleich Orientierung stiften, um Unternehmen - den etablierten wie den jungen - den Weg zum wirklich Neuen zu ebnen
