You need networks and values. Small groups that are loosely connected but united by a common purpose is crucial! Planning, organization and discipline is also many times where organizations don’t put in the effort. “Coupled Oscillation” provides some cool examples (e.g. fireflies and crickets). I also liked the examples of the civil rights movement, IBM’s transformation, Lean at Wyeth, the power grid debacle and broadway musicals success factors.

Repetitive read, and if you’ve read other books on similar topics you can expect many of the old textbook examples such as blockbuster. Would not recommend the book, rather read a short summary somewhere that outlines his core argument

A good review of research on social change. Would prefer more practical application, though the author's topic is kept so broad, it's hard to see how that could be feasible.

It did have two new concepts for me. The rest was not very practical. Wears out the same few examples over and over.

Apart from the stories on civil rights movement, the detailed examples were unremarkable. Read the summary on Blinkist instead of the whole book
