76: TZ Interview – Thomas Thurston / Modeling Disruption

Justin and Jason interview Thomas Thurston of Growth Science International, LLC about his “disruptive innovation” model for predicting whether a startup will succeed or fail.

  1. Neville says:

    Ha ha! The Costanza Approach: “If everything I do is wrong the opposite must be right!”

    Great interview, really fresh thinking and thought provoking analysis of startup strategy.

    Happy Festivus

  2. A very interesting interview. Good job in picking the guest!

  3. Bopinder Abu Morpalinder Singh says:

    Wow, *none* of my ideas fall under the better-chances umbrella.

  4. Bopinder Abu Morpalinder Singh says:

    Wow, the death-of-a-thousand-cuts is totally my experience.


  5. Bopinder Abu Morpalinder Singh says:

    Jason’s doing the yes/no questions again

  6. @Bopinder Abu Morpalinder Singh

    I think Jason is well aware of this by now and he has mentioned that he is working on it, now if you want to teach him how to interview correctly why don’t you point us to your podcast and show us how it is done?

  7. Bopinder Abu Morpalinder Singh says:

    I’ll get right on that sir.

  8. Robin says:

    Very interesting interview, I especially liked the simplified explanation of disruption theory.
    The cheapest and worst, plus fast improvements concept validates the minimum viable product theory and the Guy Kawasaki saying “don’t worry be crappy”.

  9. This episode was eye-opening. It is the perfect example of why TechZing is probably the best podcast on web startups. It is very unlikely I would have heard about Thomas otherwise. He was a very enjoyable speaker. Thanks for bringing him on the show.
