Abstract and Keywords

This chapter considers the historical changes that have occurred in the way corporations engage in innovation, conceptualizations of disruptive innovation, and the consequences of recent developments in technology, models and movements for the corporate form (particularly boundaries), practices, and leadership. It discusses how the notion of disruption innovation has developed, and summarizes the main innovation dichotomies that have emerged from years of academic research on how corporations innovate. It then focuses on the implications of open innovation and business model innovation for the corporation, and details current responses of corporations to disruptive innovation. The chapter concludes with a consideration of how disruptive innovations are impacting the role and significance of the corporation in modern society.

Keywords: innovation, disruption, business model, leadership, corporate forms, corporate purpose
