Abstract

Any business can be devastated virtually overnight by a new offering that is both better and cheaper. We call this strategy “Big Bang Disruption,” because its introduction signals the complete and often sudden re-invention of the industries it affects. This article describes the special challenges and opportunities faced by Chinese businesses in deploying and responding to this new breed of disruptive innovations.

Keywords: China, disruptive innovation, strategic planning
