Disruptive Innovation

Marcus Weldon, May 29, 2016

Over the past couple of decades there has been a clear shift towards the venture-backed ‘start-up’ method of disruptive innovation, and a concomitant decrease in the amount of disruptive innovation occurring in larger industrial labs.  In the attached presentation, I argue that the differences between the two innovation models are not as stark as conventional wisdom would have it and, moreover, that the two models can - and should - coexist and complement each other with their different value propositions, as part of an innovation continuum.
