Submitted by: > Shomila Malik, Product Director

This was one of the first books I read early on in my career which made a real impact. I quickly recognized the ‘dilemma’ of incumbents being unable to innovate effectively while they are still focused on their core business. Although it’s difficult to find a solution (although the follow up by Christensen does offer some clues), just being able to understand the issue is enlightening. It makes you realize how many companies hit this roadblock and how some of their innovation initiatives are doomed to fail as a result of this dilemma.
