A Message From The Christensen Institute

We are saddened by the passing of our friend and founder Clayton Christensen. It was a privilege to work alongside him and learn from his intellect and exemplary kindness and compassion.

Clayton worked tirelessly to better understand the nature of innovation. He studied it with precision, uncovered groundbreaking insights, and gave innovators a new lens—and a new lexicon—through which to view the world. The Christensen Institute is honored and humbled to be a part of his legacy and will continue his important work to improve the world through Disruptive Innovation.
