Game Changer

Updated October 1, 2019

What is a Game Changer?

A game changer is a person or thing that radically changes an industry or a company.
 

How Does a Game Changer Work?

For instance, when Apple introduced the iPod, the product was a game changer. It revolutionized the way in which music was purchased and consumed. Though other companies had already launched MP3 players, Apple's product had a more attractive design, a big marketing budget, and, most important, a music platform (iTunes) that virtually dictated how music would be distributed going forward.

Why Do Game Changers Matter?

Game changers are disruptive. They are sometimes crazy ideas. But if they work, they can be wildly lucrative. Unfortunately, they don't come along often.
