Following up on yesterday’s post on disruption, I spotted this interview with Clayton Christensen where he tells the story of how the Innovator’s Dilemma became such a big hit but also mentions the sector he thinks is most likely to be disrupted next — higher education:
I think higher education is just on the edge of the crevasse. Generally, universities are doing very well financially, so they donâ€™t feel from the data that their world is going to collapse. But I think even five years from now these enterprises are going to be in real trouble.
Definitely an area we’re interested in but, as I mentioned yesterday, we’re not looking for disruption for disruption’s sake.
