Eric Lefkofsky has written a book called Accelerated Disruption: Understanding the True Speed of Innovation. Accelerated disruption is defined as a phenomenon that innovations often end up slipping through the cracks of the market because of the failure to realize that technology can overtake the new inventions in an instant. A disruptive business is one that is defined as offering a better choice in price, service, functionality and/or convenience from the way that those goods and services are currently being run.
In Accelerated Disruption, Eric shows the reader how to choose the right business to innovate, turning industrial pain into a competitive advantage, and how to test the new ideas under the radar. Accelerated Disruption’s bottom line is that it is more than possible for disruptive businesses to be established and sustained with the right conceptual and intellectual framework and contact him.
