  1. I am participant for this program and for cohort June, 2019. I hope can share the past of my experiences to my peers soon.

  2. OMG you guys are just amazing! Thank you for all the information and beautiful drawings, they totally help me a lot with my master course 😀 Keep going guys!

  3. You made a mistake mentioning UBER as a disruptive company. This company does not meet the requirements for being considered disruptive, it is not a product which has a lower performance as the cabs and the most important thing, it has to go after a lower client segment or a new market niche.
    Instead of that, the company goes after the cab's clients, it did not start from one of those segments, therefore, it cannot be considered as a disruptive product.

  4. Clay Christensen has talked about Uber in 2015, and he clearly pointed out it is NOT a disruptive innovation!!!!!
    Christensen, C. M., Raynor, M. and McDonald, R. (2015) ‘What is Disruptive Innovation?’, Harvard Business Review , Available at: http://www.ey.com/Publication/vwLUAssets/ey-hbr-disruptive-innovation/%24FILE/ey-hbr-disruptive-innovation.pdf

  5. Summary: as you become successful, you become really good at doing what you do.
    Whereas Startup is a company in search for repeatable business model.
    One Startup eventually finds something and becomes the new big company and become efficient at doing what it does.
    Landscape changes, new needs arise and new efficient ways become available. Yet your big company is so good at doing what it does it doesn't feel the sting until new lethal bacteria has formed and it wipes out the whole thing……even if you wanted to change, your customers, employees, managers, investors all resist the change. until customer one day realizes what they wanted was stupid, and there are better things (horses vs cars) and you're left with 50 barns of horses that your customer wanted you to have, you had become so good at providing horses that you had all the big customers, and you asked them what they wanted they always said better horses. and that what you did. you just didnt see the future.
    You were busy making customers happy by doing what they ask you to do. while a startup was busy winning them.

    my solution: once best be like nature.

    – Always continue to have variations.
    – Dont aim to be the best but better than the other guy, this way your are on look out.
    – Have competition with in.
    – Exploit all possible way to have life: leave no niche uncontested: dont let others take your underside, (Life lives on grasslands but also at corners of underwater boiling acidic fumes. You dont know where new innovation could make disruption easy, it rather be your business canabilizing your other business then someone else)

  6. Excellent summary! One suggestion is to have 15 minutes capsule to give a run down on each chapter's key takeaway! I know I am asking for more! (;-)

  7. Great concept!! thanks!!
    Would you consider making one about "Ten types of innovation" from Doblin? 🙂
