Professor Clayton Christensen at the Harvard School of Business is one of my heroes in the business world. His series of books on disruptive innovation have changed the way I think about new products, and provide theoretical tools that have assisted my approach to intellectual property strategy in my work (even though IP strategy is not discussed in his works). I was happy to see an article from him in the February Ensign (not yet on the LDS.org site) - I hope you'll read it. Also, I was impressed to see that he has made his personal testimony of the Gospel available on his Website, ClaytonChristensen.com. It's in the form of an essay about his beliefs called "Why I Believe." Since it's almost guaranteed to cost him some business, I admire his courage and kindness in sharing that.
