This is a book about learning how to lead people the right way by going trough all phases of people leadership. The six turns in the pipeline that are discussed in this book are major events in the life of a leader. The aggressive attempts to recruit outsiders suggest that most organizations’ leadership pipeline is inadequate. Internal training, mentoring, and other developmental programs aren’t keeping the pipeline full, making it necessary to look outside. Everyone seems to be fighting over a relatively small group of stars who tend to move from organization to organization. What’s needed is an approach that will allow organizations to keep their own leadership pipelines full and flowing.
The Innovator's Dilemma explores how the creation of new technologies can cause companies to lose market share or their markets entirely, even companies that do everything right such as listening to their customers, watching the marketplace, and investing in research and development.
