Still, Christensen is the real deal. I saw him speak, three months after his stroke, and marvelled as his ability to communicate the fundamental things of business and life. We could do a lot worse in life than listen to him.

In 2012, despite business journalism’s fetishization of Steve Jobs, the most successful leader ever, whose apotheosis was Walter Isaacson’s doorstop, Steve Jobs, a biography of the half-Syrian, bearded man who built the world’s most valuable company, brick by brick, and found himself, like an earlier CEO of sorts, with legions of devoted apostles, some powerful enemies, and an inextinguishable legend?”

Whoa! Yes, it’s entirely possible, and more so since that opening paragraph.

We are sure there’s some coherent thought in there waiting to bust out, but we’re going to give up at this point — after five reads — trying to liberate it ourselves.

They were masters of the universe, and the only threat they faced was from someone who might come along and substitute much cheaper corn syrup for sugar in their flavoured water.

So Coke disrupted and did it first, changing the recipe. And very nearly destroyed the entire company in the space of a single press conference….
