This Issue: Wizards of Disruption

I often get asked how I reconcile my engineer background with my passion for magic. This is surprising to me, as I’ve always seen a lot of continuity between both domains. This issue of our newsletter helps to clarify how magic and innovation are in reality deeply intertwined. No magic, no innovation — and vice versa! 

Take care.

Wave of the Month

Magic isn’t real, but the perception of magic is, and requires the intervention of a magician. Find out why this matters in the world of disruptive innovation, and why wizards thrive mightily in this type of environment.
