SUMMARY

Praise for Forces for Good "Crutchfield and McLeod Grant have made a significant contribution with a Very Big Idea- the shift in focus from building an organization to building a movement. Inspired and inspiring, this book can change the way the world works by changing how leaders think." -Jim Collins, author, Good to Great, and coauthor, Built to Last "The [nonprofits] having the greatest impact these days are those that have moved beyond old traditions. They are entrepreneurial, adaptive, externally-oriented, and sometimes a little messy. Working together, they are not only trying to fix problems, but also reform whole systems. For people who want to change the world-and who doesn't?-this book provides an invaluable road map. Bravo!" -David Gergen, professor of public service and director, Center for Public Leadership, Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government "Global problems like abject poverty and climate change require innovative, scaleable solutions. We have so much to learn from these six practices because they're what lead to wide-scale social change." -Larry Brilliant, executive director, Google.org, and Sheryl Sandberg, board member, Google.org, and vice president, Google.com "If you're a funder, you have to read this book. It will frame how you think about lasting impact and greatly enhance your due diligence. The six practices should be your six principles of grantmaking." -Edward Skloot, president, The Surdna Foundation "[This book] frees entrepreneurs from the distraction of conventional management measurements. Instead, its findings say, 'Go ahead and change the world!' Indeed! This is the only true bottom line." -Bill Drayton, chair and CEO, Ashoka: Innovators for the Public, and chair, Youth Venture "Anyone who wants to affect systemic change and make a lasting difference in the world should read this important book and take its lessons to heart." -J. Gregory Dees, professor, Center for the Advancement of Social Entrepreneurship, Duke University's Fuqua School of BusinessCrutchfield, Leslie is the author of 'Forces for Good', published 2007 under ISBN 9780787986124 and ISBN 0787986127.
