Podcast: Exponent Episode 008 – Debating Disruption

On the newest episode of Exponent, the podcast I co-host with James Allworth:

In this episode we take on the validity of Disruption Theory in three parts:

  1. A discussion of Jill Lepore’s New Yorker article attacking disruption, as well as the debate that surrounded the article
  2. Ben’s article from last fall “What Clayton Christensen Got Wrong”
  3. A deeper discussion about whether or not managers can really do anything about true disruption, and whether or not they should even try
