Following up on yesterday’s post on disruption, I spotted this interview with Clayton Christensen where he tells the story of how the Innovator’s Dilemma became such a big hit but also mentions the sector he thinks is most likely to be disrupted next – higher education:
I think higher education is just on the edge of the crevasse. Generally, universities are doing very well financially, so they don’t feel from the data that their world is going to collapse. But I think even five years from now these enterprises are going to be in real trouble.
Definitely an area we’re interested in but, as I mentioned yesterday, we’re not looking for disruption for disruption’s sake.
