After The Gold Rush

from the why-do-companies-fail? dept

I’ve always been a big fan of Clayton Christensen’s writings on technology innovation. For years he’s been about as dead on as any person I’ve read. Now he’s come out with a collection of six of his papers entitled After The Gold Rush. They look at why technology companies fail. The article about it (linked here) talks about how it discusses the different stages of competition that companies go through – and how many internet companies didn’t really understand those things, and tried to compete on the wrong factors. It makes some interesting points. The full text of the report is available at Innosight.
