Updated: Nov 2, 2021

It is with sadness that we say good bye to "the most influential managment thinker of his time".

"Clayton M. Christensen, a Harvard professor whose groundbreaking 1997 book, “The Innovator’s Dilemma”, outlined his theories about the impact of what he called “disruptive innovation” on leading companies and catapulted him to superstar status as a management guru, died on Thursday in a Boston hospital. He was 67"

- New York Times obituary

For all that have the passion for innovation, disruption, entrepreneurship with a dignified and respectful approach to human kind we tip our hats with respect, pause and reflect and simply say, "Thank You Clayton".
