   * On why we can ask people to participate in both the hierarchical work as well as network work "The key issue here is that people’s energy levels are not a zero-sum number. It’s not the case that, if 20% of your capacity goes into network activities, there is only 80% left over for your regular job. People can expand their energy and expertise to 120% or 150% of current levels, and in a well-functioning dual system they do. If you have never seen this, it can, quite logically, be hard to believe. But most of us have seen this, at least within the context of a whole life. Think of the parent who has no spare time but somehow makes time, without shirking other commitments,​ when his or her child needs tutoring to do well in school. Or the man who is “exhausted” at the end of the workday yet is building a twenty-five-foot boat in his backyard with energy that comes from … where?"​ In other words, it's not a zero sum "​resource"​ game.   * On why we can ask people to participate in both the hierarchical work as well as network work "The key issue here is that people’s energy levels are not a zero-sum number.

 The book I've used in the past to guide with work associated with transformations to an agile approach was [[https://​www.amazon.com/​Leading-Change-New-Preface-Author-ebook/​dp/​B00A07FPEO/​ref=sr_1_1?​ie=UTF8&​qid=1490112030&​sr=8-1&​keywords=leading+change+kotter|"​Leading Change"​ - John Kotter]] where Kotter talked about an eight-step process for managing change with positive results. By outlining the process every organization must go through to achieve its goals, and by identifying where and how even top performers derail during the change process, Kotter provides a practical resource for leaders and managers charged with making change initiatives work. Leading Change is widely recognized as his seminal work and is an important precursor to his newer ideas on acceleration published in Harvard Business Review. The book I've used in the past to guide with work associated with transformations to an agile approach was [[https://​www.amazon.com/​Leading-Change-New-Preface-Author-ebook/​dp/​B00A07FPEO/​ref=sr_1_1?​ie=UTF8&​qid=1490112030&​sr=8-1&​keywords=leading+change+kotter|"​Leading Change"​ - John Kotter]] where Kotter talked about an eight-step process for managing change with positive results.
