Disruptive Innovation

Disruptive innovation, a term coined by Harvard Business School Professor Clayton Christensen, describes a process by which a product or service takes root initially in simple applications at the bottom of a market and then relentlessly moves up market, eventually displacing established competitors. The theory of disruptive innovation has proved to be a powerful way of thinking about innovation-driven growth. However, many people use the term to describe any situation in which an industry is shaken up and previously successful incumbents stumble; that is much too broad a usage.
