Dark Side of Innovation is more than Disruption
The Dark Side of Innovation is all about disruption and how to win over disruptive forces. However the reason for my calling it the dark side is two-fold. I explain both the reasons in this episode. Don’t miss the link of the dark side of innovation with the Jungian shadow.
Can you Win Against Disruption?
Although it is an existential challenge when you face disruptive forces, many firms have succeeded against disruption. In my book I distil the lessons of managing disruption from hundreds of companies, in this episode, I extract those learnings into a few dos and don’ts. These are the seven lessons of The Dark Side of Innovation.
