6 Breakdowns in the Process for Disruptive Innovation

“To succeed in the face of disruptive change requires established firms to master three distinct disciplines: ideation, to generate potential new business ideas; incubation, to validate these ideas in the market; and scaling, to reallocate the assets and capabilities needed to grow the new business”

—Charles O’Reilly and Andy Binns, Change Logic

The COVID pandemic started with a surge in business innovation. Companies adopted virtual working, accelerated product development to record levels to meet the need for healthcare equipment and vaccines. What would have been years of digital transformation were compressed into months as companies fought to respond to constantly changing conditions.

A recent McKinsey study found that 75% of executives see post-COVID as representing major opportunities for growth. However, slower, weaker companies risk becoming victims to nimble, well-funded attackers. Never has the need to learn the disciplines of disruptive innovation been more important.

That means learning how to ideate, incubate, and scale new businesses.
