In February, Clayton Christensen, Michael Horn, Louis Caldera, and Louis Soares published a research report entitled “Disrupting College: How Disruptive Innovation Can Deliver Quality and Affordability to Postsecondary Education.” The report was sponsored by the Center for American Progress and Innosight Institute. Christensen is a Harvard Business School professor noted for his study of disruptive innovations that influence industries and a few years ago, he and his colleagues penned a book entitled Disrupting Class: How Disruptive Innovation Will Change the Way the World Learns which I reviewed on my blog.
