Disruptive innovation is running rampant. Virtually every industry has felt its effect. The music and creative industries, in particular, have experienced the 'perfect storm' of disruptive forces, including digital technology and generational changes in consumption. It has been open season for market entrants – legal or illegal.  But, disruption is transforming the entire creative industries sector, from TV, Media, Publishing, Music to the arts. This is happening on a global scale – new platforms, business models and access to data bring constant change.

Disruption is the subject of the latest in the ‘Creative Dynamics’ series at Henley Business School.

As a business in the creative industry, how should you view disruption? As a new competitive challenge forcing a healthy revamp of your business model and customer proposition?

What sort of leadership capabilities are required, and how are they effectively mobilised in order to capture new opportunities brought to market by disruptors? How well is the sector “Managing for Disruptive Innovation”? This event will bring together an exciting array of speakers, scholarly research around strategic capabilities, and of course provide dynamic and provocative discussion!
