The Diamandis 6 D’s of Disruption

The Diamandis 6 D’s of Disruption Curve

This is the famous Disruption Curve created by Singularity University co-founder Dr. Peter Diamandis. He discusses this at great length in his book “Bold”(2015) he co-wrote with fellow futurist Steven Kotler. It’s the second picture a SC has to upload into her subconscious. Whether a CPA wants to be a SC or not...this curve is going to be in the back of her mind when a client asks her when exactly self driving cars are going to be here for everyone. This curve serves as a guide to help a SC plot out exponential technologies...where they are coming from and where they are going.

Dr. Peter Diamandis, co-founder and chairman of Singularity University, coined the term “exponentials” to describe a category of technology innovations that are accelerating faster than Moore’s law; that is, their performance relative to cost and size is more than doubling every 12 to 18 months.

Once a process or product transitions from physical to digital, it becomes exponentially empowered. My favorite bookstore in downtown Portland, OR was Border’s. I even bought my first copy of SIN there in 2006. Border’s couldn’t imagine how fast ebooks were going to go up this curve. They were disrupted, went bankrupt and are no longer with us. I sure liked their coffee.
