Podcast: Discussing Disruption Theory

A few weeks back Horace Dediu of Asymco and I were having dinner and we got to discussing some of this updated thoughts on disruption theory. One bit in particular was how the luxury tech market was causing him to evolve some thinking on the theory as it relates to consumer markets. I thought it would be great to have him on and we could chat more about disruption and the role it plays in the technology industry in the 21st century.

  1. Integrity is the complement of trust. Organizational integrity resides the its commitment towards a mission that engenders trust.

  2. It would be convenient if there were a link to download the podcast file to allow playing at other than realtime speed and with equalization and pitch correction. The embedded player lacks these features. I could get similar capability with a podcast app but that does add a lot of steps to the process. It would be nice to have a single link to download so that I can just add it to my workflow, thanks.

  3. Thanks for this podcast. I learned a lot from it. In particular, I think it was the first time that Horace detailed how disruption theory applies to tech, even potentially the luxury tech industry. That is to say, how disruption theory encompasses even consumer or luxury markets if and only if we take more care in determining what the “P” axis, the “jobs-to-be-done” is. If we are do not do a good job of this, as Clay himself failed to when he dismissed Apple, then it may appear that disruption theory does not apply to these markets.

  4. “It’s trust, trustworthiness….”

    It’s all about trust. When I worked in book publishing, I once submitted our standard contract to a law firm for review. It came back gutted. I threw it away.

    I never saw a contract that was of any value if trust was missing or broken. An agreement can affirm a relationship and even build it; a contract cannot replace a relationship, cannot replace trust.

  5. Wonderful blog you have here but I was curious if you knew of any community forums
    that cover the same topics discussed here? I’d really
    love to be a part of community where I can get advice from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest.

    If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Many thanks!

  6. Hi there, There’s no doubt that your web site may be having web browser compatibility problems.

    When I take a look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine however, if opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping
    issues. I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads
    up! Other than that, great blog!

  7. I do not even know the way I stopped up right here, however
    I thought this post used to be great. I do not recognize who
    you might be however certainly you are going to a famous
    blogger when you are not already. Cheers!

  8. Can I simply just say what a relief to uncover someone that
    truly understands what they are talking about on the net.
    You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make
    it important. More people have to read this and understand this side of your story.
    It’s surprising you are not more popular since you most certainly have the gift.

  9. Admiring the commitment you put into your website and in depth information you provide.

    It’s good to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t
    the same out of date rehashed material. Fantastic
    read! I’ve saved your site and I’m including your RSS feeds
    to my Google account.

  10. Great post. I used to be checking continuously this weblog and I’m impressed!
    Extremely helpful info particularly the last part 🙂 I
    take care of such information a lot. I used to be looking for this certain information for a long time.
    Thanks and good luck.

  11. Greetings I am so glad I found your blog page, I really found you
    by mistake, while I was searching on Yahoo for something else, Anyhow I am here now and
    would just like to say thanks a lot for a fantastic post and a all
    round enjoyable blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to read through it all at the moment but I have
    book-marked it and also added in your RSS feeds,
    so when I have time I will be back to read a great deal more, Please do keep up
    the great b.

  12. With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My website
    has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement.

    Do you know any techniques to help prevent content from being
    ripped off? I’d genuinely appreciate it.
