"Catalytic Governance is an important book that shows and explains in detail how some of the new approaches to change - dialogue and scenario planning - are evolving as the crucial methodologies for dealing with the complex and systemic problems that private and public organizations are increasingly facing." -- Edgar H. Schein, Professor Emeritus, MIT Sloan School of Management, and author of 'Humble Consulting' "This book is as much a manual on managing an inclusive multi-stakeholder dialogue as it is a tour de force about the contours of technology-driven change in the information era." -- Rohinton P. Medhora, President, Centre for International Governance Innovation "Based on my experience as a participant in the remarkably successful transformative process described so clearly in this book, I believe that Catalytic Governance should be used widely to make progress on a range of wicked problems." -- Barbara G. Stymiest, Former Group Head of Strategy, Treasury and Corporate Services, Royal Bank of Canada
