I disagreed with many ways the author applied the disruptive innovation model, especially his idea of the need to disguise the disruptive innovation as a sustaining one. That leads to the organization snapping back to what they know and the old way of doing it, rather than giving the new doctrine, technology, etc.

He also downplayed the role civilians play in driving military innovation So perhaps he meant that both sides of the argument would have allies in Congress and moot the influence of an outside civilian champion. Either way, threats to the organization's resources and clear proof of superior performance in combat were key in every example.

Although I use the disruptive innovation model a lot myself, most of the time events are driven by the confluence of many models simultaneously, not just one. There were several cases the author claimed were disruptive, but I'm not convinced they meet all the criteria, nor do I think that disruptive innovation theory alone explains some of the events he describes.

All of my kvetching aside, this book really provoked me into thinking more clearly about how disruptive innovation theory and other innovation theories work in a military context. Agree with the author's conclusions in every case or not, it was very interesting and gave me a lot to consider. If nothing else, it covered some very important chapters in the struggles of US Navy and Marine Corps with an example from the Imperial Japanese Navy to adapt and prepare for the next conflict.
