This paper takes a look at Clayton Christensen 's theory of disruptive technologies and how Christensen's theory relates to other innovation theories. It also proposes a new layer of analysis to this theory to better link the technology analysis to the market analysis of any given technology product. This layer suggests that complementarity and substitutability are important criteria for technologies to be market disruptions or sustaining changes.
