Review - The Innovator's Dilemma

This book is a business management classic, and I’d say has been incredibly influential in the corporate technology sector. I’d read the Wikipedia page for Clayton M. Christensen’s “Disruptive Innovation” which details breifly most of the ideas contained in The Innovator’s Dilemma but wanted to go to the primary source.

I didn’t love reading this book. It’s detailed, methodical, and sober. But it’s ideas are so influential and I think so powerful that I gave it 5 stars. It’s a must-read.

I asked the engineers at work if they’d heard of this “famous mormon” and his book, and got no affirmative replies, so The Innovator’s Dilemma might be underappreciated within software circles, given that it’s ideas have become ‘the water we swim in’.
