Be the disruptor. That’s the clear message in the cover story for the new Fall issue of Nieman Reports in which renowned Harvard Business School professor Clayton M. Christensen, Canadian journalist David Skok, NF ’12, and Harvard Business Review contributor James Allworth apply Christensen’s theory of disruptive innovation to the news industry. By examining why and how successful businesses are undermined by start-ups, they tackle the issue so many news executives have tried to better understand: how to find viable revenue streams for journalism and alter outdated operational strategies for continued success.
