Disruptive Thinking

Disruptive innovation is services or products, usually simple and inexpensive that target the lower end users of an established market. Usually, higher end users think the product is inferior and will not adopt it. If the innovation then improves to the point where it is acceptable to higher end users, it will be adopted until it overtakes the existing market leaders. In this topic we explore disruptive thinking and why we need to think outside the box as individuals and organizations.

Historically, “disruptive” has been seen as something dangerous and unmanageable – think of the disruptive schoolchild who is constantly being sent to the principal’s office. But disruptive thinking has more recently become an exciting buzzword, and an aspiration for many organisations: now everyone wants to be the next disruptor in their industry! We can all think of organisations that have shaken things up and changed the game for consumers, and others that have been taken out of the game completely by bolder and more enterprising players.

Disruptive thinking can be a positive and powerful way of looking at your life or your business, enabling you to approach innovation with a fresh perspective and break free of the confines of routine operations.

But what is disruptive thinking, exactly? How does it help organisations drive change and stay competitive? Is there a risk of being too disruptive? And where do we start, if we want to try thinking in a totally different way?

In this workshop, you will discover that disruptive thinking can be learned and applied in your own life and career, as well as in your team, department or organisation. You will learn a simple process that will help you develop a new thinking pattern and encourage you to start shifting your perspective "outside of the box."


Are you excited by the idea of really shaking things up?

  • Do you tend to stick with the status quo and follow the path of least resistance?
  • Have you ever taken the time to look at your organisation from a totally different perspective, and ask yourself: “What if…?”
  • Can you see potential opportunities for unconventional innovation, but are not sure how to follow them up?

By the end of this session you will be able to:

  • Explain what is really meant by the term “disruptive thinking”, and highlight the drivers and benefits
  • Analyse and evaluate some examples of disruptive innovation in the business world
  • Challenge the unquestioned assumptions about the way your organisation operates
  • Generate some provocative ideas to experiment with within your organisation
