This book says "yes," arguing for the need for visionary change agents in organizations and resolving the paradox of visionary change in a bureaucratic environment.

â¢ Explains how to manage visionaries more effectively by encouraging them to make meaningful contributions that can be embraced and claimed by others in the organization
â¢ Enables leaders who are change agents to improve their chances of staying in an executive position long enough for their ideas to gel and take positive effect
â¢ Features interesting profiles of (ultimately) successful visionariesâmaverick leaders who were often initially fired or smothered for their methods and mindsetsâthroughout the book
