The business book of the year-a long-awaited lesson in innovation from the legendary Harvard Business School professor…

With his blockbuster bestseller The Innovator's Dilemma, Clayton M. Christensen created the classic model for growth and change in corporations and cultures. Now, taking a cue from Bill Gates' 2005 critique of the American school system, he applies his theory of “disruptive innovation” to a much-needed evolution in educational technologies-offering new opportunities and challenges for the business community. Christensen brilliantly shows how tomorrow's innovations in education will change the way the world learns-and what businesses can do to meet those changing demands today.

Clayton M. Christensen's books are:

“REQUIRED READING.”-BusinessWeek

“ABSORBING.”-The New York Times

“THOUGHTFUL.”-Fortune

“BRILLIANT.”-Michael R. Bloomberg

  • Must Read!!

    Clayton Christensen, a Harvard Business Professor, has hit the mark. Using his successful theories regarding disrupting technologies and ideas in the business field, he, and his co-authors, look at education from a new perspective and offer a look at the future of education and suggestions on how to be part of the future wave of change. I was captivated for a week-end while I read every word. Can't give a higher recommendation.
