The perils of buying into a discourse

eulog002How easily do you buy into the ideas of guru’s?

Disruptive Innovation

I just love John Naughton’s last comment:

“US business schools are sausage machines for the production of soi-disant big ideas such as Christensen’s. It’s a pernicious genre based on one simple principle: the “idea” must be big enough to seem profound, but it mustn’t be so profound that it cannot be memorised by halfwits and used in PowerPoint presentations.”

Thanks to John Fredericks of NTU for sharing originally.
