Gerpisa colloquium, Krakow (2012)


disruptive innovation, electric car


Based on a literature review, we propose a conceptual framework clarifying the concept of disruptive innovation and defining criteria needed to identify all forms of strategic innovations. We then evaluate the electric technology to make a statement on its potentially disruptive nature. In addition, the future implications of electric cars are discussed to evaluate its potential mutations which can have an impact on its future innovative form.
