Today the term "disruption" is commonly used in business to signal a wide range of disparate concepts - from new business initiatives to an individual or team pursuing seemingly innovative strategies. The concept of disruption comes from Clayton Christensen's theory of disruptive innovation, which he explored in his first book, "The Innovators Dilemma" in 1997.  

On this episode of the Cohere podcast my guest is Karen Dillon,  former editor of Harvard Business Review and a coauthor of three books with Clayton Christensen, including the New York Times best-seller "How Will You Measure Your Life?" All three books extended the theory of disruptive innovation and explored various contexts in which the theory could be a useful lens.

In our conversation, Karen shares her experiences editing both Inc. and Harvard Business Review, how she met and began collaborating with Clayton Christensen, and how she continues to carry their work forward today.
