Disruption – Sustainability in the New Age
February 22nd 6:30 – 8:30pm Calgary Centre for Spiritual Living, Calgary
Everywhere we turn we hear the word “disruption” in the energy context but are we truly in a phase of disruption? This chat will give some context leveraging the work of Clayton Christensen, Harvard Professor and Disruptive Innovation Expert. Attendees can expect to hear about:
- The difference between disruptive and sustaining innovation
- What companies who last over 100 years do to transform themselves
- How technology and markets are truly disrupted
