A seminal work by bestselling author Clayton M. Christensen, now updated with fresh examples. In the international bestseller The Innovator's Dilemma, Clayton Christensen exposed the Achille's heel of many companies, by ignoring the disruptive technologies that evolve to displace them, they help initiate their own demise. In The Innovator's Solution, Christensen and Michael Raynor take the idea of disruption one step further explaining how companies can and should become disruptors themselves. Now with several new chapters and updated cases, this revised and expanded edition shows how timely and relevant these ideas continue to be in today's hyper-accelerated business environment. Christensen (author of the award-winning Harvard Business Review article, ''How Will You Measure Your Life?''), Raynor and new co-author Derek van Bever give advice on the business decisions crucial to achieving truly disruptive growth and propose guidelines for developing your own disruptive growth engine. Citing in-depth research and theories tested in hundreds of companies across many industries, The Innovator's Solution is an important addition to any innovation library and an essential read for entrepreneurs and business builders.

A Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and National Post Bestseller. Praise for The Innovator's Solution: The Financial Times "Fresh thinking aplenty ... nothing less than a handbook for managers who would rather disrupt than be disrupted." Fast Company "Every dilemma demands a solution. And this book lives up to its promise: More than an engrossing read, shot through with Christensen's rigorous thinking and trademark clarity, it's a valuable tool for every aspiring upstart--whether you're inside a billion-dollar company or have a billion-dollar glimmer in your eye." The New York Times "If [Christensen's] first book left business with the quandary of how a middle-aged company can be as creative as the new kid on the block, [this] book is an instructive tutorial on how to rekindle the spark of youth and nurture the fragile flame."

The Conference Board Review "... Required reading for every manager in America." The Toronto Globe and Mail "A promising blueprint for innovation. Read less
