With the launch of this year’s Global Innovation 1000 study, Booz & Company’s annual analysis of R&D spending, the topic of innovation has been on my mind. As I combed through scores of innovation-themed multimedia pieces on the web, I was particularly struck by a bite-sized video on Harvard Business School Professor Clayton Christensen’s disruptive innovation theory, produced by Harvard Business Review (video embedded below).

If you have two minutes to spare, it’s worth checking out this animated battle for market share between the little guys and the big ones.
