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.

Thus is only a summary

This is only a 1hr long summary of the book. Content was fine for a summary. Didn't have a good studio quality of presentation or narration I would have expected.

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!

This is a summary, not the whole book

Any additional comments?

This is a summary, not the whole book. I feel like the term unabridged is misleading. It is dull in presentation and the information only applies to large businesses already in operation. Not my cup of tea. However, if you manage a large business and are interested in innovation from that perspective, the information might be helpful, I wouldn't know.
