Disruptive innovation has wrought havoc on the profitability models of industry after industry.  Executives, focused on fine-tuning their business models, often haven’t seen the threats approaching before their business landscapes are suddenly and permanently changed. Data and the increased development of technology have accelerated the rate of these massive changes. No industry, no matter how seemingly cozy it appears today, is immune from competitors looking to grab share through disruptive innovation.

Virtually all businesses are facing some form of disruption and it is vital now more than ever that executives understand the underlying patterns of disruption, how to spot them, and what you can do about them. This course will enable executives in Marketing, General Management, R&D, Manufacturing, Sales, HR, and Finance to get a firm grasp of what disruptive innovation is, as well as how to spot potential threats and opportunities in their own business. Participants will acquire knowledge and practice tools for developing disruptive innovation solutions and new business models in their organizations.

This course is taught through case studies, balancing lecture with hands-on mini-workshops. Our faculty, Mr. Hari Nair, has over 25 years of operational experience applying innovation approaches across multiple sectors and markets. Hari was a partner at Innosight, a firm founded by Professor Clayton Christensen of Harvard Business School, who is widely regarded as the leading authority for Disruptive Innovation. Hari teaches on the topic of disruptive innovation for executive education programs across the world.

Note: This course is complementary to Carlson Executive Education’s Leading Innovation course.
