Big Bang DisruptionNearly two decades ago, Clayton Christiansen changed the way large companies thought about strategy and innovation with his book The Innovator’s Dilemma. Now, Larry Downes and Paul Nunes say it has all changed again. Larry Downes is a research fellow at the Accenture Institute for High Performance.  His brand-new book, co-authored with Paul Nunes, is Big Bang Disruption: Strategy in the Age of Devastating Innovation.

Big Bang Disruption argues that the nature of disruptive innovation has changed, and presents twelve new rules for innovators in companies large and small to take advantage of the new opportunities of better and cheaper technologies.

Together, Jesse and Larry discuss how the nature of innovation has changed, and how leaders can adjust their strategy to this new age.
