Summary Description

"Disruption" is a business buzzword that has gotten out of control.  Today, everything and everyone seem to be characterized as disruptive -- or, if they aren't yet, it's only a matter of time before they will become disruptive. 

"Disruption" is a business buzzword that has gotten out of control.  Today, everything and everyone seem to be characterized as disruptive -- or, if they aren't yet, it's only a matter of time before they will become disruptive. 

In our summary of The Disruption Dilemma, Joshua Gans cuts through the chatter to focus on disruption in its initial use as a business term, identifying new ways to understand it and suggesting new tools to manage it.

Gans is Professor of Strategic Management at the University of Toronto's Rotman School of Management and the author of several books, including Information Wants to Be Shared.

This summary describes the full range of actions that business leaders can take to deal with disruption, from "self-disrupting" independent internal units to tightly integrated product development.  But therein lies the disruption dilemma:  A firm cannot practice both independence and integration at once.  You will learn how to choose the right strategy so your business can deal with disruption while continuing to innovate.
