Charting the future of competency-based education policy

The Christensen Institute

For example, Sony began to disrupt RCA back in the 1950s and 60s by creating a portable low-cost transistor radio as an alternative to vacuum tube powered tabletop radios. Sony’s innovation only reached the hands of eager teenage buyers, however, through new distribution channels, such as the newly-minted Walmart chain. Its symbiotic relationship with a new distributor was vital to Sony’s success.

From radios to electric vehicles, targeting “nonconsumers” pays off

The Christensen Institute

Nonconsumers are a fertile market for Disruptive Innovations to take root, as Sony proved in the 1950s, and low-speed electric vehicle (LSEV) makers are showing today. Sony, teenagers, and the advent of the pocket radio. On the other hand, Sony recognized something that the industry leaders perhaps did not: vast nonconsumption of high-end radios. So, Sony decided to develop a product that made good use of the transistor’s limitations.

Targeting nonconsumption: The most viable path to growth

The Christensen Institute

But rather than see poverty as an obstacle, Sony and others identified nonconsumption as an opportunity. For instance, between 1950 and 1982, Sony developed twelve different market-creating innovations, including the first battery-powered transistor radio, video-cassette players, the Walkman, and several others. In the early 1980s, AT&T decided to pull out of the mobile phone development business. The decision came after McKinsey & Co.
