Leading thinker on driving corporate innovation through personal disruption
Recognized as one of the 50 leading business thinkers in the world (Thinkers50), Whitney Johnson is an expert on disruptive innovation and personal disruption; specifically, a framework which she codifies in the critically-acclaimed book Disrupt Yourself: Putting the Power of Disruptive Innovation to Work and Everyone Has An S-Curve: Driving Engagement by Developing Employees who Disrupt for a Living (Harvard Business Press, 2018). She developed her proprietary framework and diagnostics after having co-founded the Disruptive Innovation Fund with Harvard Business School’s Clayton Christensen. This framework is complemented by a deep understanding of how executives create and destroy value, having spent nearly a decade as an Institutional Investor-ranked equity analyst on Wall Street. She is a coach at Harvard Business School’s Executive Education, frequent contributor to the Harvard Business Review, LinkedInfluencer, and host of the Disrupt Yourself podcast.
