Clayton M. Christensen

Sure, the economy’s bad. But it’s a good time to innovate, according to Clayton M. Christensen, a Harvard Business School professor who focuses on innovation. He is the author or co-author of a number of books on the subject, from “The Innovator’s Dilemma” to a book due out next month on health care, “The Innovator’s Prescription.”

Dr. Christensen spoke with MIT Sloan Management Review senior editor Martha E. Mangelsdorf for Business Insight.

Clayton M. Christensen is the Robert and Jane Cizik Professor of Business Administration at the Harvard Business School.
