With some immodesty, I point to two essay/reviews of “The Laws of Disruption” by strategy and technology consultant Robert Keahey. In the first, Keahey echoes my view that given the growing intrusion of law into innovation, reliance on legal counsel separate from strategic integration is a dangerous mistake:
I think the book should be required reading for every manager in your corporation who has the authority to make decisions that can potentially place your company at risk of violating any of the laws described above. And I will go even one step further. Given the spread of social media and social networking as a basic tool in just about every company’s supply chain, I think the basics of copyright, patent and trademark protection should be part of every employee’s training.
