Adler Alum Addresses `Disruptive Innovation' in BOSS Magazine

An Adler University alumnus who founded a consultancy specializing in customized training and organizational development shared his ideas surrounding “disruptive innovation” in a recent BOSS Magazine piece.

“Disruptive innovation is the type of change that is so profound, it shatters our current assumptions and compels us to reconstruct our ways of thinking,” Brett Richards says, in the column. “Disruptive innovation is not your normal run-of-the-mill type of change. It’s far more intense and urgent, brought about by highly turbulent and increasingly complex environments, not unlike what we are currently experiencing right now socially, politically, economically, and environmentally.”

Richards earned his master of arts degree in counseling psychology degree from Adler University. Working with Fortune 100 and 500 companies, he currently offers expertise in organizational innovation, leadership development, team collaboration and strategic thinking.
