The Innovator’s DNA: Mastering the Five Skills of Disruptive Innovation

Innovative capabilities are not innate, argues Harvard Business School Professor Clay Christensen and INSEAD Professor Hal Gregersen and their co-author in The Innovator’s DNA: Mastering the Five Skills of Disruptive Innovators. Anyone can master disruptive innovation by developing five skills:
  1.  Associating: Drawing connections among questions, problems, or ideas from unrelated fields.
  2.  Questioning: Posing queries that challenge common wisdom.
  3.  Observing: Scrutinizing the behavior of customers, suppliers, and competitors to identify new ways of doing things.
  4.  Experimenting: Constructing interactive experiences and provoking unorthodox responses to see what insights emerge.
  5.  Networking: Mixing with people who have different ideas and perspectives.
