The Innovator's Solution: Creating and Sustaining Successful Growth
by Clayton M. Christensen, Michael E. Raynor
  In his worldwide bestseller The Innovatorís Dilemma, Christensen explained how industry leaders get blindsided by disruptive innovations precisely because they focus too closely on their most profitable customers and businesses. The Innovatorís Solution shows how companies get to the other side of this dilemma, creating disruptions rather than being destroyed by them.
Drawing on years of in-depth research and illustrated by company examples across many industries, Christensen and Raynor argue that innovation can be a predictable process that delivers sustainable, profitable growth. They identify the forces that cause managers to make bad decisions as they package and shape new ideasóand offer new frameworks to help managers create the right conditions, at the right time, for a disruption to succeed.
