A groundbreaking guide for driving transformational change
If you could make a change—any change you wanted—what would it be? Would it be something in your organization or your industry? Maybe something in your community or throughout society as a whole? If you had a magic wand that would allow you to instantly change anything you wanted, what would that change look like?
In this groundbreaking book, one of today’s top innovation experts delivers a guide for driving transformation change based on the new science of networks and research into dozens of people and organizations that have created truly historic impact. This book will show that to truly change the world or even just your little corner of it, you don’t need a charismatic leader or a catchy slogan. What you need are small groups, loosely connected, but united by a common purpose.
Perhaps most of all, Cascades points to a new role for leaders, who can no longer rule by fiat or merely plan and direct action, but must inspire and empower belief. “Power no longer sits at the top of hierarchies,” he writes, “but emanates from the center of networks.”
