Clay Christensen's Forum for Growth and Innovation at the Harvard Business
66. Defending the Castle Against Disruptors: Jean Wright, MD/MBA on Innovation in Healthcare
A little over a year ago, The Forum for Growth & Innovation ventured to North Carolina to learn about the ways in which a team of innovators had spread the gospel of disruption to the senior leadership of Atrium Health. Regular listeners of the podcast may remember Episode 36, when we interviewed Ann-Somers Hogg on her experience studying the theories of disruption and jobs-to-be-done as an executive education participant at HBS, before bringing that language home to her team at Atrium Health and spreading it to senior leadership via HBS Online. This week, we are delighted to release, at long last, a conversation with the mind behind the mission: Jean Wright, MD/MBA, the former Chief Innovation Officer at Atrium Health. In 2015, Jean was awake to the challenges of disruption facing her industry and sought out ways to build a culture of innovation and learning at Atrium, sending her employees to study at Stanford, Harvard, and MIT for executive education courses. This podcast was originally research material that was used by The Forum for Growth & Innovation to develop a case study of disruption in the healthcare industry, but, we thought it so compelling that we knew we had to share it with you. Dr. Wright offers lessons by example and experience in leadership, management, and innovation that we know you'll find inspiring and useful.
