We are living in an age of disruption. How various businesses create and capture value, is constantly being challenged. Industries are collapsing into larger ecosystems that span the boundaries separating markets. Firms are finding that their primary competitors are not even in their own industry. Having the best product or service is no longer enough. We need business models that are scalable and agile. This dynamic poses severe challenges for incumbents. Succeeding in this volatile environment requires not only a thorough understanding of what disruption is and how to deal with it, but even more importantly, how and when to disrupt others. This programme brings together crucial insights from cutting edge research on disruptive innovations and practitioner experiences to navigate this complexity.

The pace, scale and impact of innovation has accelerated over the years. While innovation can enhance the value of existing products and services, it can also render existing business models obsolete. As a result, we must continuously rethink and revisit who our customers are, and who we are – i.e., are you a car manufacturer, a computer company or a platform which is agnostic to which products or services are being sold on it. How to disrupt, or prevent oneself from being disrupted, is central to success today. This programme will provide you with the tools and frameworks to harness the power of disruption and responses to it.

  • Learn the fundamentals to ‘disruption’
  • Understand how to operate successfully within an ecosystem.
  • Discover the challenges associated with platforms
  • Identifying disruptive opportunities
  • Discover ecosystems and how to capture value in them
  • On completion of the programme, participants will be awarded a digital certificate of completion by Cambridge Judge Business School Executive Education.
