From Innovation To Disruption

This map* shows a new way of looking at innovations along two dimensions: technology and mindset.

The two dimensions represent these two challenges each innovation faces. For both dimensions there are several phases the innovation will go through, to eventually be considered a disruption. The challenge is identifying innovations today that will become disruptions tomorrow.
The map shows a snapshot of innovations and disruptions in 2014. * Concept: Cisco, GDI Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute. Stages of technological development based upon Pyramid of Technology model by Van Mensvoort (2014)
