The Innovator's DNA

Mastering the Five Skills of Disruptive Innovators

Clayton Christensen, Hal B. Gregersen, and Jeff Dyer

Christensen, Gregersen, and Dyer unpack the difference between mere managers and true innovators based on a simple model of five skills. The key difference between innovative leaders and the rest is based on the amount of time they dedicate to discovery.


The Innovator’s DNA is a fantastic framework for us to design creative spaces in our programs. In these spaces we work to improve people’s discovery skills: disruptive questioning, experimenting, idea networking observing, and associating.
