  1. Here’s the spark notes version:
    1. As people in complex professions discover patterns and share knowledge, the need for high intelligence and great intuition are diminished by best practices and precise rules.

    2. Startups with a truly unique differentiation and a smaller profit margin are much more likely to replace incumbents. Established companies tend to compete for more profitable areas.

    3. Don’t segment customers by human characteristics but by the jobs a product or service accomplishes for them. The data points draws a much deeper cause and effect.

  2. Over time I've collected a LOT of startup advice, but the observations given here is profoundly unique.

  3. @ClaytonChristensen is genius! I had to actually work through the Innovators Dilemma with my last company http://LaunchLeads.com – where I spent 5.5 years bootstrapping a start up to profitability. http://QuotaDeck.com –
    But what his book helped me to do, was create my next company. 
    Where I was able to take all of the learning of my last company and iterate upon it for what will be best for the future of B2B sales technologies. 

    Thank you Clayton – and say hi to Emily for me!
