Financial Nigeria announces editorial partnership with Christensen Institute to promote market innovation
The editorial partnership with the renowned Institute was conceived to educate readers of Financial Nigeria about the power of market-creating innovations to help create shared prosperity across the globe.
The Editorial Board of Financial Nigeria magazine, Africa’s premier development and finance journal, has said it is collaborating with the Clayton Christensen Institute, a nonprofit and nonpartisan think tank based in Boston and Silicon Valley in the United States, to promote a new column on market innovation. The editorial partnership with the renowned Institute was conceived to educate readers of Financial Nigeria about the power of market-creating innovations to help create shared prosperity across the globe.
The Institute, which is dedicated to improving the world through Disruptive Innovation, was co-founded by Harvard Business School (HBS) professor, Clayton Christensen, who passed away on January 23, 2020 at the age of 67. Professor Christensen was the architect of Disruptive Innovation, and one of the world's foremost authorities on innovation management. In 2011 and 2013, he was named the World's Most Influential Business Management Thinker by the London-based Thinkers50.
Under the partnership, articles by the Institute’s Research Fellows will be published every month in the print editions of Financial Nigeria magazine and co-published on the online platform www.financialnigeria.com. The articles will be published under the title: “Market Innovation with the Clayton Christensen Institute.”
"We are proud to be closely associated with a research institute that is advancing theories and transformative ideas that are reshaping the way policymakers, business leaders and entrepreneurs can harness the power of Disruptive Innovation to enhance productivity and address society's problems," said Martins Hile, Executive Editor of Financial Nigeria magazine. "This collaboration further demonstrates our commitment to sharing insightful thoughts for policy and market performance.”
The magazine – published by Financial Nigeria International Limited and mainly distributed by subscription – has been published every month since August 2008. The magazine is specially produced as a knowledge-intensive periodical, providing informed and data-rich analyses of topical issues and trends in policy and market. Through knowledge-based articles and interviews of credible opinion leaders, the publication seeks to inform civil public discourse, encourage a reading culture, and raise the quality of Nigeria’s human capital to improve national productivity.
Speaking on the editorial partnership, Hayden Hill, Vice President of External Relations at the Christensen Institute, said, "We’re thrilled to partner with a publication that’s committed to providing readers with an in-depth analysis of some of today’s most pressing issues surrounding finance and economic development. As we leverage our research to catalyze prosperity in low- and middle-income countries, this editorial partnership will play a critical role in empowering business leaders and policymakers with the innovation insights they need to propel emerging economies forward."
The Institute’s researchers who will contribute articles to the monthly column include Efosa Ojomo, Senior Research Fellow and co-author of The Prosperity Paradox: How Innovation Can Lift Nations Out of Poverty. Efosa researches, writes, and speaks about ways in which innovation can transform organisations and create inclusive prosperity for many in emerging markets. Lincoln Wilcox, a Research Associate at the Institute, will also contribute to the column.
