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
Over a year ago, The Forum for Growth & Innovation team ventured to North Carolina to learn about the ways in which a group of innovators had spread the gospel of disruption to the senior leadership of Atrium Health. Regular listeners of the podcast may remember when we interviewed Atrium's Ann-Somers Hogg on her experience of studying the theories of Disruptive Innovation and Jobs To Be Done as an executive education participant at HBS, before bringing the learnings and language home to her team at Atrium Health and spreading it to senior leadership, including through enrollment in HBS Online's Disruptive Strategy course. 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 her position, Jean was well aware of the challenges of disruption facing her industry and sought out ways to build a culture of innovation and learning at Atrium, for instance, by sending her employees to study at Harvard, Stanford, 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. However, we thought it so compelling that we knew we had to share it with you as well. Dr. Wright offers lessons by example and experience in leadership, management, and innovation that we know you'll find inspiring and useful.

Lessons from a first-time CEO — Steve El-Hage on learning everything the hard way
Our third episode is with Steve El-Hage, Founder and CEO of Drop (formerly Massdrop). Drop is an electronics brand that creates products based on feedback from enthusiast communities. Steve and Drop aren’t household names — you’ve very likely never heard of them. But we think his gritty growth journey is one of the best untold stories in Silicon Valley. Put simply, it was a heads-down, 8-year grind with wild swings. After dropping out of school and starting Drop as a first-time founder when he was just 22, Steve and his co-founder were short on cash and Silicon Valley connections — but they quickly spun up an interesting business that generated tons of traction early on. After wrapping up their first fundraise, the challenges started to set in, from revenue immediately dropping off a cliff and key hires not working out, to painful pivots, severe burnout, and all the obstacles that come with scaling faster than you can handle. As Steve puts it, he “learned everything the hard way” on the journey from founder to CEO. In today’s conversation, Steve unpacks those lessons and gets candid about the misfires. He also shares tactical advice for hiring folks overlooked by the market and getting more out of your startup’s advisors. It’s a must-listen for leaders looking to build teams and companies that can go the distance. Even if you’re not an aspiring CEO, there’s still plenty of inspiration to go around.

Rafiqa Quratta A'yun - the omnibus Law on Job Creation
Rafiqa Quaratta A'yun - the omnibus Law on Job Creation Since early October, large-scale protests have taken place on the streets of Jakarta and other cities around Indonesia in opposition to the new omnibus Law on Job Creation (UU Cipta Kerja). The 1000+ page law includes 186 articles and revises 77 existing laws, yet it took a relatively short time to be drafted and reviewed before being passed into law.   For months, legal scholars and academics warned about the lack of transparency around the drafting of the law and the haste with which it was completed, arguing it was unlawful. Meanwhile, workers, students and environmentalists have demonstrated over the law's weakening of workers' conditions and environmental protections.  What is in the omnibus law and why has President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo's government made it a priority? Who are the winners and losers of the law? What does the process of its enactment tell us about the government, its priorities and values? In Talking Indonesia this week, Dr Jemma Purdey discusses these questions and more with Rafiqa Quratta A'yun, PhD candidate at the Centre for Indonesian Law, Islam and Society (CILIS), Melbourne Law School. In 2020, the Talking Indonesia podcast is co-hosted by Dr Jemma Purdey from the Australia-Indonesia Centre, Dr Dave McRae from the University of Melbourne’s Asia Institute, Dr Charlotte Setijadi from the ISEAS-Yusof Ishak Institute in Singapore and Dr Dirk Tomsa from La Trobe University.
