I have used Clayton Christensen's Harvard Business Review article for a
couple of years in business classes that I have taught as a university
professor.I look forward to reading his new book!
I am highly motivated to purchase and read this book after seeing this article.
I love reading positive things in the paper. Way to go DN!
Clayton Christensen is not just the smartest man at Harvard, he's the
brightest in the country. His theory on "disruptive innovation" gave me
the chills when I first read about it in his book. He's cutting edge and a
transformational leader. I would LOVE to be in a room with him for one day just
to pick his brain. Forget Mark Rubio, Clayton ought to be Mitt Romney's new
vice presidential candidate. That's a Harvard team I can get behind. Go
I predict we are going to keep hearing more about Clayton Christensen....
Having read 'Disrupting Class' and being in a room where he presented
on the issue of disruptive technologies and their impact on education, this
sounds to me like the most crucial 'disruptive' effort. Everyone
needs to contemplate where they stand in this life from time to time and how
they take on the large and even hourly decisions of their lives. With or
without God in a person's life, our challenge should be to respond to the
question put forth in the title of this book or at least we should ask, how do
we not fail? Very much looking forward to this book and the genuine, honorable
insights of this very intelligent and spiritual man who also finds value in the
sciences of measuring and assessing things. So many are in such huge need of
this sort of insight, especially the one writing this post.
Clay Christensen may be the smartest man at Harvard. Yet when he speaks, as he
does in interviews, he makes you feel an equal. Clearly, in most cases
one's not, as he's a Harvard and Oxford educated, Rhodes Scholar and
business leader. That's why he's so compelling. He isn't
condescending as so many of these pinheaded, know-it-all, Ivory Tower,
academics. I'm getting his book tomorrow. Maybe part of his secret is in
Clayton Christensen is an amazing, innovative leader in business and education.
An example for all. The Deseret News is so lucky to have him as a member of
their editorial board.
I've known Clayton since high school.. can't wait to read the book.
He is a fantastic person who speaks out about issues that will improve society
and not just the balance sheet of Harvard Business School graduates.
