The Intro and First Chapters are worth the book,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Innovator's Dilemma: When New Technologies Cause Great Firms to Fail (Management of Innovation and Change) (Gebundene Ausgabe)
Much of the focus on this book and its popularlity has been on innabilities of companies to adapt to major tech shifts and the great data to support this (though I wish there was a more accessible example outside of the disk drive industry that was as well researched). I would contend that there is a profound gem hidden early in the book regarding the concept of 'value networks'. (I'm sure some org behavior folks have thought about this but few people in the strategy -- esp. mgmt or change consulting -- have taken this to heart.) Organizations are a network of structural relationships between stakeholders (employees, suppliers, investors, customers, et al) that is highly inflexible (this is what creates the consistency necessary large orgs and their quality expectations, requirements). When organzations try to do something new, this network of relationships often keeps change in check. Forget the tech angle, this is about companies, momentum and inflexibility and how most companies can't change or dramatically evolve without leadership that recognizes that the entire network must be primed to accepted radical transformation and its requisite ambiguity (e.g., GE and Gerstner or Maytag and Lloyd Ward). Totally worth trudging through the numbers.
