Clay Christensen speaking at Duke on 3/11
Clay Christensen, a Harvard Business School professor and author of "The Innovator's Dilemma", will give a talk on "The Innovator's Prescription: The Future of Academic Medicine and Health Care" on March 11 from 10:30-11:30 a.m. followed by 15-20 minutes of Q&A in Geneen Auditorium in Duke's Fuqua School of Business.
