Dr. Clayton Christensen

Professor at Harvard Business School

Dr. Christensen, a professor at Harvard Business School, is acknowledged as one of the world’s leading thinkers on innovation. His research has been applied to national economies, Fortune 50 companies, and to postsecondary education in America. His seminal book The Innovator’s Dilemma outlined his disruptive innovation frameworks and was a New York Times bestseller, ultimately translated into 25 different languages. Dr. Christensen is a four-time recipient of the McKinsey Award for the Harvard Business Review’s best article. In 2008, he founded Innosight Institute, a non-profit think tank to further examine and apply his frameworks. In Disrupting College: How Disruptive Innovation Can Deliver Quality and Affordability to Postsecondary Education, he and his colleagues offer an analysis of the current challenges to higher education and a powerful set of insights that provide “a language that allows people to come together to frame these challenges in ways that will create a much higher chance of success.”
