As companies seek to keep relevant, they can build sustaining or disruptive innovations. According to the Innovator's dilemma by Christian Christensen, the most powerful protection small entrant firms enjoy as they build disrutpive technologies for emerging markets is to do something that does not make sense for established leaders. Most often than not, this involves attending to a new market that established leaders are not paying attention to.
Movie Night: Henry Ford

In this month's movie night, we shall screen the Henry Ford documentary. The purpose is to identify and discuss about lessons we can learn from a 20th century American Innovator on innovation. An absorbing life story on how an American Farm boy rose from obscurity to become an influential american innovator. It offers an incisive look at the birth of America's auto industry with its long history of labors and struggles, and how Ford's automobile forever changed the way we work.
We shall thereafter have a discussion on the film in relation to building disruptive technological change

Intellectual Property (IP) is protected in law by patents, copyright and trademarks, which enable people to earn recognition or financial benefit from what they invent or create. By striking the right balance between the interests of innovators and the wider public interest, the IP system aims to foster an environment in which creativity and innovation can flourish.
