Signaling a new era in its quest to identify innovative solutions to society’s most challenging problems, Innosight Institute announced it will now be the Clayton Christensen Institute for Disruptive Innovation. Co-founded in 2007 by Harvard Business School Professor Clayton Christensen, the nonpartisan think tank now more appropriately recognizes the architect of disruptive innovation and its association with his powerful research.
“This is an exciting time in the Institute’s history,” said Ann Christensen, president of the Christensen Institute. “Through these changes, we’re helping people better understand our work and mission. We're also honoring and building upon Clayton Christensen’s legacy and the vital work he’s done in providing a new lens through which to look for solutions to the most pressing problems facing us today. “
As part of its name change, the Institute has introduced a new website and other touch points aligned with its new identity, including:
By applying theories of disruptive innovation, the Institute has helped the health care and education sectors create a common language to frame critical issues, understand why those problems are occurring, and support leaders and organizations in identifying courses of action to enable change. The Institute continues to make inroads among policymakers and other influential stakeholders in both fields.
Clayton Christensen coined the term disruptive innovation in his research on the disk-drive industry in the 1990s, and published his breakthrough book on the topic, The Innovator’s Dilemma, in 1997. Since then, he has published several books, including two that are at the foundation of the Institute's work: Disrupting Class, which he wrote with Michael Horn and Curtis Johnson, and The Innovator’s Prescription, which he wrote with Dr. Jason Hwang and Dr. Jerome Grossman.
“From the beginning, the Institute has stayed true to its purpose,” said Clayton Christensen. “This is because it has been guided by good theory. Good theories don’t change. They are beacons to which we can look for solutions and try to change the world in a positive way.”

The Clayton Christensen Institute for Disruptive Innovation is a nonprofit, nonpartisan think tank dedicated to improving the world through disruptive innovation. Founded on the theories of Harvard Professor Clayton M. Christensen, the Institute offers a unique framework for understanding many of society’s most pressing problems. Its mission is ambitious but clear: work to shape and elevate the conversation surrounding these issues through rigorous research and public outreach. With an initial focus on education and health care, the Christensen Institute is redefining the way policymakers, community leaders and innovators address the problems of our day by distilling and promoting the transformational power of disruptive innovation.
