In this revolutionary bestseller, Harvard professor Clayton M. Christensen says outstanding companies can do everything right and still lose their market leadership, or worse, disappear completely. And he not only proves what he says, he tells others how to avoid a similar fate.

Focusing on "disruptive technology" of the Honda Supercub, Intel's 8088 processor, and the hydraulic excavator, Christensen shows why most companies miss "the next great wave."

Whether in electronics or retailing, a successful company with established products will get pushed aside unless managers know when to abandon traditional business practices. Using the lessons of successes and failures from leading companies, The Innovator's Dilemma presents a set of rules for capitalizing on the phenomenon of disruptive innovation.

    «Instant classic» direbbero gli anglofoni. Libro che non può non esser letto, dico io. Christensen parla del dilemma a cui si trovano di fronte i manager (e quindi le aziende): non importa quanto bravo tu sia, il solo fatto di agire per il bene dell'azienda porterà questa alla rovina. Non c'è soluzione, o perlomeno: c'è da trovare una soluzione, che si chiama imparare a capire cosa sono le innovazioni «disruptive» e come favorirle all'interno della propria azienda, senza però snaturarla.

    Libro che devono leggere: tutti gli appassionati di tecnologia, tutti i manager, e chiunque voglia capire perché tantissime aziende — nonostante siano guidate e ci lavorino persone intelligenti e capaci — falliscono e sembrano comportarsi in modo stupido. Chiunque dovrebbe leggerlo, insomma.

    Shocking

    Shocking revelations are made in this book. A bit repetitive, but a very interesting read - and sometimes despairing, too!
