Disruptive Innovation
Why do some large, well-respected, well-run firms go bankrupt
... almost overnight?   Do you remember Kodak, Blockbuster,
and Borders to name only a few?  

Innovation is a key component to most successful company
strategies these days.  Most find success in "sustaining"
innovations in which the firm grows its market share, year over
year, in current markets, with current customers and current
value propositions.  New products and services focus primarily
on these well-established business models and historical
success factors.  Quality improves continuously as the product
and / or service evolves.
