If you’re on the inside, it can be hard to stimulate change in the wider system because although you have some explicit authority, you’re constrained by your stakeholders’ expectations. We can’t really look to you to show the way on a wider front.
If you’re on the outside, it can be hard to stimulate change because although you’re not constrained, you don’t have authority.
But you do have the chance to be radical.
And those on the inside need those on the outside to be radical, because the stakeholders are influenced.
And then those on the inside can do something different because they have authority.
And then the system can change.
