Publisher's Summary

Please Note: The audio has been updated for better sound quality.
This audiobook was created based on Clayton Christensen's landmark book The Innovator's Dilemma. This was Mr. Christensen's synopsis of his book for the Harvard Business Review. The audio tracks listed here cover the key elements of Mr. Christensen's book. This audiobook emphasizes the Idea in Brief "Does my organization have the right resources, processes, values, and team to innovate?" Then it covers the right structure for your specific type of innovation. He identifies where capabilities reside, in resources, processes, and values. He then addresses the migration of capabilities, illustrates it with the example of Digital Equipment (DEC), defines sustaining versus disruptive innovation, how to create capabilities to cope with change - internally, in a spinout, or an acquisition - and how to fit the tool to the task.

poor quality summary only

Would you try another book from Clayton Christensen and/or Deaver Brown?

This is incredibly poor quality recording and a summary only of a great book.
Sounds like recorded in a bathroom, when you can hear computer's fan and the narrator clicking a mouse, some weird background noise. The narrator seems to read it without much understanding and preparation. Avoid!

What disappointed you about The Innovator's Dilemma?

I could not handle listening to this thing for more than two minutes... the quality is terrible.

It was recorded in a noisy environment with no technical resources nor knowledge at all!!

How could the performance have been better?

Someone recorded this at home with the worst microphone ever and lots of background noise!!
