Professor Whitney Johnson

Recognized as one of the world’s most influential management thinkers, Whitney Johnson is best known for her work on driving corporate innovation through personal disruption. Johnson developed her proprietary framework and diagnostics after having co-founded the Disruptive Innovation Fund with Harvard Business School’s Clayton Christensen. This framework is complemented by a deep understanding of how executives create and destroy value, having spent nearly a decade as an Institutional Investor-ranked equity analyst on Wall Street.
