Ways to Incorporate Disruptive Innovation as Part of the Management Agenda

A few days ago I was in a conversation with Adam Hartung, who observed brand managers are constrained, as a matter of practicality, to focusing exclusively on sustaining innovation. They normally donít focus on entirely new, disruptive innovation.

The thought I explored with him was making brand managers responsible for making some portion of each yearís sales come from markets which are entirely new to that industry. And whether (or not) this would be a good way to incorporate innovation initiatives which would necessarily have disruptive potential.

Iíd be curious to know whether you believe this might be an effective way to incorporate disruptive innovation into the development mainstream of large, multi-brand corporations. Or do you see other, better ways to incorporate disruptive innovation as part of the management agenda?

Thoughts?
