You can put me down in the camp of those who name their blog after something bigger than themselves. An idea so big, I am having trouble consistently spelling the name of the blog without making typos. I remember reading Clayton M. Christensen words: “Disruptive innovation creates asymmetric competition” and just being blown away by that concept.
I believe innovation is currently being thrown around too lightly. Christensen’s insight became a business model buzzword. Thousands of products claim to offer disruptive innovation, while only offering small innovations increments, not full disruption.
This is a process blog, whose main goals is to learn about innovation. Starting with an analysis of competition and how there is hardly an even match. This leads to asymmetries between competitors. One competitor will have more money, better resources, connections and be a dominant incumbent. But be displaced by a new entrant who has other resources which allow for a disruptive innovation to emerge and overtake the incumbent.
One of the main premises I wish to explore is that in order to know the full extent of the asymmetry of the competition we must first objectively analyze both competitors which can be the basis of an innovation strategy.
