the failure of established firms

from a reader

What’s inspiring about this paper is that it describes what it takes to develop radical new innovations in companies and society as a whole.  You need new components, but you also need to put these components together in entirely new ways.  Another thing that’s inspiring about this paper is that it (in my opinion) shows clearly how TBM students are needed in an innovative society – they should be the architects of new systems, who use the established technological components of their fellow engineers, but put these pieces together in surprising new ways.
