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.

Bad recording and (perhaps) not BY Christensen

Wish I'd read the previous reviewers comments before I bought. I think there are some interesting points from the book here (and the product is quite cheap) but it really does sound like it was recorded in a bathroom! Is this in any way actually BY Clayton Christensen? It appears someone is summarising Christensen's book making this in fact a piece by DEAVER BROWN ....with all due respect I'm fairly sure I wouldn't have bought a book by Mr Brown.

Feel free to purchase as long as you understand this a recording ABOUT a book - I should have checked more closely...

This is a very poor recording (possibly in a bathroom given the amount of echo) of a SUMMARY of this book.

I would NOT recommend it.
