Is Uber disruptive? What is the disruptive potential of the platform business model?

Is Uber disruptive? The Disruptive Voice podcast asked five experts on the theory of disruptive innovation this question and received varying responses, yet their prescriptions for what lies ahead for Uber and the incumbent taxi companies vary less than you might think. In this episode, the podcast revisits Professor Clay Christensen’s December 2014 article in Harvard Business Review, “What Is Disruptive Innovation,” with co-author Rory McDonald, Innosight Managing Partner Scott D. Anthony, Christensen Institute co-founder Michael B. Horn, and Forum Senior Researchers Tom Bartman and Efosa Ojomo. Also discussed: the platform business model through the lens of disruptive innovation and what’s next for Uber.
