When Innovation Fails to Disrupt

Although innovation is typically seen as disruptive to incumbent firms, this book shows that it does not necessarily need to be. Using a successful example of incumbent response in the media industry to technological discontinuity, Lucy Kung explores the factors that made the innovation successful. The book applies multi-lens analysis to explore the architecture of organisational variables - structures, strategies, processes, cultural values, cognitive structures, leadership styles - that contributed to the success.
