A crash course in changing the world.
Social innovators face many challenges to their work – economic, political, security, technological, and even cultural. These forces are mostly viewed as external to the organization or the individuals; however there are internal disruptor's or “Black Swans” (1) that can occur within the organization itself.
These internal black swans can be just as problematic as external black swans to the life of a organization, let alone getting social innovation done.
I have created this blog as a forum to encourage frank examination, discussion, and hopefully formulate possible solutions to these disruptors.
Forearmed is forewarned as they say.
Now we won’t be able to anticipate every Black Swan that comes our way, but the ones we can identify thereby removes them from the black swan category. The result is one less unexpected problem we have to deal with.

discoveries, historical events, and artistic accomplishments as "black
swans" — undirected and unpredicted.
