Disrupt Yourself®

As a co-founder of Professor Clayton Christensen’s
Boston-based Rose Park Advisors, Whitney applies the
frameworks of disruptive innovation to identify disruptive stocks. What she has discovered is that these theories can be applied to personal disruption, raising the probability of a successful professional life. We give a lot of airtime to building disruptive products and services, and to investing in disruptive companies, and we should. These are vital engines of economic growth. But, the most overlooked engine of growth is the individual. If you want your company to put innovation on over-drive, turn
the lens of disruption to the individual, and disrupt yourself.
