The Innovator’s DNA

The Innovator’s DNA: Mastering The Five Skills of Disruptive Innovators (2011) by Dyer, Gregersen, and Christensen is one of the books on my summer reading list.

Having read it, I would say that it is an interesting read … one that I would recommend to those interested in expanding their skill set for “doing” innovation – both sustaining and disruptive.*

Also, and this might be a stretch, it may be a good read for educators who are interested in teaching a skill set for 21st century learners and those who must compete for jobs in a global economy.

Generally, a read like this would result in a series of blogs. This report will be different … just one blog with a list of the five skills of disruptive innovators. If the list peaks your interest, then go ahead and read The Innovator’s DNA.

The five skills of disruptive innovators are:

(1) Associating;
(2) Questioning;
(3) Observing;
(4) Networking; and
(5) Experimenting
