Clay Christensen, the Harvard Business school professor who has been ranked the number one management thinker in the world two years in a row, is the speaker in a 90-second video that champions the vital role of the Judeo-Christian heritage in a democracy. Christensen is famous for his work on disruptive innovation and is the author of The Innovator’s Dilemma.
His deep Mormon faith is part and parcel of his life and work, and even though he is a gentle man, he is capable of fury when his work is attacked on false grounds. After a New Yorker piece harshly criticized his work on disruptive innovation using highly questionable tactics, Christensen fired back and decimated his attacker in no uncertain terms.
Christensen and his wife have five children.
