How is almost everyone around misusing the term “disruption” and how have they been misapplying it for years? Why Uber is not disruptive and how to you really determine if an idea or startup has any disruptive potential at all? This, and more in the episode.

In this episode #002 I explain:

  • Why almost everyone around you is misusing the term “disruption” and has been misapplying it for years.
  • Go through the different innovation types, along with some prominent examples for each of them.
  • What actual disruption looks like and how it takes place, by citing an example from the steel industry and showing you how integrated steel mills, dominating the steel industry for decades, were blindsided and overrun by an initially inconspicuous technology.
  • How you determine if an idea or startup has any disruptive potential at all.
  • Why Uber is not a disrupting the cab industry, despite what the majority believes.
  • What you should focus on instead, so that your idea or company will increase its chances to become a disruptor itself.
