At BYU, Pres. Thomas Monson relates how Harvard's Clayton Christensen got Book of Mormon testimony
Forbes writer David Whelan reported that "Clayton Christensen beat a heart attack, cancer and a stroke in three years. In the latest issue of Forbes magazine I interviewed the Harvard Business School professor and those close to him about his experience battling these three grave illnesses. The story covers it all: life, death and a plan to fix the health care system."
In August 2010, New York Times columnist David Brooks described Christensen's approach to living as "the Well-Planned Life" and compared it very favorably to what Brooks called "the Summoned Life."
"The first vision is more American," Brooks wrote. "The second vision is more common elsewhere. But they are both probably useful for a person trying to live a well-considered life."
At the urging of his students, Christensen himself shared more about his approach in a Harvard Business Review article he wrote in 2010 titled "How Will You Measure Your Life?" The article went viral online, one of the most popular online pieces ever published by HBR.
Deseret News reporter Jamshid Ghazi Askar reported that the three questions Christensen asks his students on the last day of class are, "First, how can I be sure that I'll be happy in my career? Second, how can I be sure that my relationships with my spouse and my family become an enduring source of happiness? Third, how can I be sure I'll stay out of jail?"
Deseret News reporter Michael De Groote published a profile of Christensen here .
Deseret News reporter Sara Lenz wrote about the book published this summer by Christensen and BYU-Idaho vice president Henry Eyring about how smart universities can radically improve higher education. The book is titled, "The Innovative University: Changing the DNA of Higher Education From the Inside Out."
