Technology and Disruption

Wars are won before they are fought - Sun Tzu

Usually the playing field is not level making the outcome effectively predetermined. In business, usually the incumbents have the advantage. Disruption happens when something that was an advantage turns into a disadvantage, swapping the playing field in favor of a newcomer. Horace Dediu calls this "asymmetric competition" or ASYMCO.
