The innovator's curse

Innovation is not something that happens randomly or only through the incantations of a "Chief Magical Officer". There is a repeatable process for successful innovation which is something markets don't necessarily reward.

When Harvard Business School‘s Clay Christensen discusses innovation (for example his talk at BoxWorks here) he puts forward theories on the causes of success and failure of innovation. Through a repertoire of case studies evoking David vs. Goliath, Christensen, an authority on disruptive innovation, offers a convincing alternative to the management orthodoxy which prevents innovation, especially the meaningful disruptive kind, in established organisations.

More importantly he asserts that innovation is not something that happens randomly or only through the incantations of a "Chief Magical Officer." There is a process and even perhaps a repeatable process for successful innovation.
