The Disruption Complex In Business Today

Posted by

Episode #418 of Six Pixels of Separation – The Twist Image Podcast is now live and ready for you to listen to.

Bob Knorpp may be best known for his stunningly fun podcast on the advertising business known as The Beancast, but he also has a deep passion for the world of innovation (along with that, he is a regular contributor to Ad Age). In the past short while, famed author, educator and thought leader, Clayton Christensen, came under fire after his seminal book, The Innovator’s Dilemma, got picked apart by a widely spread article in The New Yorker titled, The Disruption Machine, by Jill Lepore. There has been plenty of discourse (online and otherwise) about this topic. Christensen even took to the pages of BusinessWeek to clarify the comments and add more color to the arguments. Ultimately, what we learn is that disruption and innovation are complex models that often don’t sit well in the way that businesses have been built. On this show, Bob and I discuss the merits of both sides of the argument, what it means to marketers and how businesses are able to grow and thrive in a world that is seemingly more disruptive than ever before. Enjoy the conversation…
