Blue Ocean Strategy, the #1 global bestseller, forever changed how the world thinks about strategy. Now W. Chan Kim and Ren e Mauborgne offer up a bold, new idea that will transform how we all think about innovation and growth.
Disruption dominates innovation theory and practice. But disruption, for all its power, is destructive--displacing jobs, companies, and even entire industries. Are we missing an alternative approach to innovation and growth?
With three decades of research, the #1 global bestselling authors of Blue Ocean Strategy, W. Chan Kim and Ren e Mauborgne, reveal another way to innovate and grow. Just as Blue Ocean Strategy redefined the essence of strategy as creating not competing, Beyond Disruption redefines and expands the existing view of innovation by introducing a new approach, nondisruptive creation, that is free from the destructive displacement that happens when innovators set out to disrupt.
Kim and Mauborgne reveal the distinct advantages of nondisruptive creation to business and society, showing how this new approach to innovation allows companies to grow while also being a force for good. With examples that reach across all sectors of the economy and a practical framework for guiding innovation efforts, this book shows:
- Why nondisruptive creation matters to all of us and why it is likely to become even more important in the future
- How it complements disruption and how you can identify and execute on nondisruptive opportunities
- How companies can more thoughtfully pursue their growth and innovation strategies in a way that better balances business and society
A practical guide for driving innovation and growth, the rich research behind the book, coupled with its frame-breaking message, make it the must-read book for the next generation of innovators.
