The 10 Relevant Areas For DIM

Disruptive innovation describes those innovations that create new markets by discovering new categories of customers. They do this partly by harnessing new technologies but also by developing new business models and exploiting old technologies in new ways. Disruptive innovation differs from sustaining innovation, which mainly is about improving existing business models, products or services.

The 'Innovator’s Dilemma', a term coined by Harvard Professor Clayton Christensen, describes a situation which established companies face and their difficult choice between holding onto an existing market by doing the same thing a bit better, or capturing new markets by embracing new technologies and adopting new business models.

The disruptive innovation maturity describes the company´s readiness and capabilities to deliver such disruptive innovations. We have identified the 10 most relevant areas that need to be taken into account when thinking about the why, how, what, where and by whom of disruptive innovation.
