Gentle Giant
Forbes 25Jan99
By Toni Mack

One day a week when he's not teaching at Harvard Business School where he holds a Doctor of Business Administration degree, 46 year-old Clayton Christensen jets off to consult for companies like Intel, Hewlett-Packard and Eastman Kodak, just to name a few.

A gentle giant at 6'8", Christensen grew up in Salt Lake City in a family of eight children. He began reading the World Book Encyclopedia as a nine year-old and finished it three years later. Christensen attended BYU after turning down scholarships to Harvard and Yale and served a church mission to Korea.

Christensen, a former Rhodes Scholar and White House Fellow, authored a book "The Innovator's Dilemma: When New Technologies Cause Great Firms to Fail".

Married to his college sweetheart and now father to 5 children, Christensen maintains contact with the Boston Korean community and helps immigrant families in the area.
