    I’ve been wanting to read this book since my days in the social entrepreneurship. Like Deutsche Bank’s recent microloan syndication, I firmly believe you cna create a sustainable business model doign good thing. The first chapter goes into why meauring percentage of fund used for cause vs management was flawed; instead the fitness function should focus of output rather than input. The next few chapters focus assembling great people for who they are rather than what they can do, the skillset required to lead an organization with a diffused power structure, how to focus on delivering core value and why turning down much needed but restricted resource will steer you closer to the mission. And last building pocket of greatness in an environment with systematic issues.

    A very short book. Well worth my 15 minutes.  You can find it here
