Clayton Christensen is a well known theorist and teacher about disruptive innovation, which is sort of an economist’s followup to Toffler’s ideas of future shock. IOW, Clayton is trying to help equip us to understand the change of our time. He has a non profit institute doing some of that work, which is described below through the video. Of note is his “initial focus” on education and healthcare, two fields that PSA views as overlapping greatly in the age of information. Tools that disrupt in one, may well disrupt in the other.
The Clayton Christensen Institute is a nonprofit, nonpartisan think tank dedicated to improving the world through disruptive innovation. Founded on the theories of Harvard professor Clayton M. Christensen, the Institute offers a unique framework for understanding many of society’s most pressing problems.
Our mission is ambitious but clear: work to shape and elevate the conversation surrounding these issues through rigorous research and public outreach.
With an initial focus on education and health care, the Christensen Institute is redefining the way policymakers, community leaders, and innovators address the problems of our day by distilling and promoting the transformational power of disruptive innovation.
