Summary
Destined to be controversial, this analysis of the new business paradigm shows how firms that do 'everything right' can nevertheless fail because of new technologies and disruptions in the market structure. Reprint.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Great companies can fail-not because they do anything wrong, but because they do everything right. Meeting customers' current needs leads firms to reject breakthrough innovations-"disruptive technologies" that create the products and opportunities of the future.Radical thinking . . . and a wake-up call. Citing examples from many industries (computers, retailing, pharmaceuticals, automobiles, steel), Clayton M. Christensen explains how to avoid a similar fate. He presents strategies for determining when not to listen to customers, when to pursue small markets at the expense of larger ones, and other ways to ensure long-term growth and profit. This award-winning book shows managers the changes that may be coming-and how to respond for success.
