Christopher Meyer

Christopher Meyer is dedicated to anticipating and shaping the future of business. He has pursued this goal as entrepreneur, executive, consultant, leader of a think tank, and author. Two consistent threads run through Meyer's writing: adaptive enterprise and network-based business innovation. Adaptive enterprise refers to the application of lessons of biology to the design of enterprises with the capacity to sense, respond to, and adapt to changes in their environment. Network-based business innovation makes the case for leveraging networks of individuals - both within and outside an organization - to garner different perspectives on a problem, recombine them to generate new approaches, and then apply selective pressure to 'squeeze out' the most inventive and useful ideas. These two threads coalesce into the overarching theme of Meyer's thought leadership, namely the application of network science to business and innovation. Meyer has published three books, including BusinessWeek Best Seller "Blur: The Speed of Change in the Connected Economy," "Future Wealth," and "It's Alive: The Coming Convergence of Information, Biology, and Business." He blogs on the Harvard Business Review site, and has contributed to publications including Harvard Business Review, Sloan Management Review, Fast Company, TIME, The Wall Street Journal, and BusinessWeek. Meyer is currently in the process of writing his fourth book, "Standing on the Sun," about how capitalism evolves as the economic center of gravity shifts to low-income, fast-growth, digital-native economies, which will be published by Harvard Business School Press in November of 2011.
