Zum Inhalt Christensens wegweisendes Werk „The Innovator’s Dilemma“ erschien 1997 und zählt heute zu den wichtigsten Managementbüchern überhaupt. Der New York Times Bestseller wurde in über zehn Sprachen übersetzt und erhielt zahlreiche Auszeichnungen. Unternehmen scheitern aus vielen Gründen. Dass führende Unternehmen aber scheitern, weil sie im Grunde alles richtig machen, klingt paradox. Und doch erweisen sich die klassischen Erfolgsfaktoren wie Kunden-, Ertrags- und Wachstumsorientierung bei disruptiven Innovationen als geradezu gefährlich und existenzbedrohend. Anhand von Erfolgen und Fehlschlägen führender Unternehmen präsentiert „The Innovator’s Dilemma“ Regeln für einen gelungenen Umgang mit dem Phänomen bahnbrechender Innovationen. Diese Regeln werden Managern helfen zu entscheiden, wann es sinnvoll ist, sich nicht nach den Kundenwünschen zu richten, in weniger leistungsfähige Produkte mit geringeren Margen zu investieren oder in noch kleine, aber wachstumsstarke Marktsegmente zu stoßen. Das Buch zeigt die „Unlogik“ von disruptiven Innovationen auf und will zugleich Orientierung stiften, um Unternehmen – den etablierten wie den jungen – den Weg zum wirklich Neuen zu ebnen. „Die Beschäftigung mit Christensens Ideen ist für Praktiker wie Wissenschaftler gleichermaßen gewinnbringend.“ FAZ vom 27.12.2011

Scheidungen, kein Kontakt zu den Kindern, Gefängnis wegen Betrugs - all das hat Harvard-Professor Clayton M. Christensen bei ehemaligen Kommilitonen gesehen und es hat ihn zum Nachdenken angeregt: Wie konnte es so weit kommen? Und wie macht man es besser? Seine Überlegungen führten Christensen zu den drei grundlegenden Fragen: Wie führe ich ein glückliches und sinnerfülltes Privatleben? Wie werde ich beruflich erfolgreich und habe Freude an meiner Arbeit? Und wie vermeide ich es, im Gefängnis zu landen? Er findet die Antworten in Wirtschaftstheorien, die er auf persönliche Lebensentscheidungen überträgt - so zum Beispiel die Einführung einer Familienkultur, um den eigenen Kindern Leitlinien an die Hand zu geben. Dabei gibt er jedoch nicht rigide Verhaltensregeln vor, sondern liefert Denkanstöße, mit deren Hilfe der Leser zu seiner ganz persönlichen, maßgeschneiderten Strategie für ein erfülltes und erfolgreiches Leben gelangt.

Arguably, the nation’s community colleges have experienced more change in the last several years than they have over the prior 115 years of their existence. Rapid changes in technology, external pressures for accountability and student completion, aggressive competition from other higher education institutions (i.e., public, for-profit, and private), changes in enrollment demographics, as well as new economic, market, and operational models stand to completely disrupt this relatively young enterprise. Unrelenting Change provides useful, practical examples for community college leaders as they seek to thoughtfully and strategically align their organization for the new dynamic in higher education. Furthermore, Unrelenting Change offers insights into the change process, including institutional assessment and readiness, consideration of cultural implications, strategic intentions toward innovation, as well as risk, failure, and success. Rather than perceiving change and disruptive innovation as merely happenstance, or luck, the author provides discernment into the topic so as to give community college leaders solid, guidance, if not improved odds, in undertaking this important, competitive edge for the future of their intuitions, and by extension, their students.

A fresh approach to managing organizational change by looking at it as complex, dynamic and messy as opposed to a series of neat, linear stages and processes leading to success. Key to the approach is the idea that change, creativity and innovation all overlap and interconnect rather than being three separate areas of study and that managing the three together is central to organizations having the competitive edge in developing new technologies and techniques, products and services. The book continues to offer practical guidelines as well as a theoretical understanding of change, creativity and innovation. It delivers an equal balance of critical perspectives and sound ideas for organizational change and development and presents the idea that change can be proactive, driven by creativity and innovation. The new edition includes additional change management content including learning, personal change, managing the self, employability, developments in conventional Organizational Development and new emergent forms including appreciative inquiry. Along with a series of rich international case studies, including TNT Australia, Amazon, Leeds Rhinos, Jerusalem Paints, Alpha Pro Pump and KPMG. It is supported by a range of learning and revision aids including reflective exercises, review and discussion questions and hands-on research tasks. All of which help students to reflect on the material covered and provide a source for more open group discussion and debate. A companion website accompanies the book, with additional material including PowerPoint slides for lecturers and video links and access to SAGE journal articles for Students. Suitable for upper-level undergraduates and postgraduate students.
