Insurgence is designed to help business leaders apply new methods to the most important business problem they face in the world today: namely, how to overcome their incumbent mentality to maintain relevance and discover new sources of growth. At the convergence of lean, business model innovation, agile, and design thinking, insurgence is a methodology and business philosophy that will help leaders in incumbent businesses rediscover how to operate like small and nimble insurgents whilst maintaining many of their incumbent advantages. Incumbent businesses, often having enjoyed a long period of relative historical market stability, are increasingly unprepared for nimble insurgents coming on to the field of play and applying different assumptions and business models at speed and scale. These incumbent businesses find that the business models that fuelled their success are no longer robust to the change surrounding their business, and they are becoming increasingly obsolete, weighed down by a high degree of internal focus, inflexible internal controls, and an inability to innovate. Meanwhile, nimble insurgents strike at the heart of these weaknesses by formulating alternative core assumptions, building adaptive business models, and innovating in close proximity to customers and market needs. This book enables business leaders to characterise the difference between incumbents and insurgents, develop new ways of thinking about how to compete in this age of accelerating change, and provide a new framework for strategy and innovation that helps leaders to discover the essence of insurgence for their businesses. It uses rich case studies that illustrate both successful and unsuccessful efforts to help leaders move from theory to action at speed and at scale.

Why does the allegiance that radical terrorists give to their false cause exceed the allegiance that most Christians today give to Jesus Christ? In Insurgence, bestselling author Frank Viola presents a radical proposal for Christians. Namely, that we have lost the explosive, earthshaking gospel of the kingdom that Jesus, Paul, and the other apostles preached. Viola argues that we've lost this dynamic, titanic, living gospel and exchanged it for a gospel of religious duty or permissiveness and "easy believism." In today's politically charged era, Christians on the progressive left as well as the conservative right both equate their particular viewpoints with the kingdom of God. Viola challenges and dismantles these perspectives, offering a fresh and revolutionary look at the gospel of the kingdom. Viola writes with gripping power, challenging Christians to embrace an unparalleled allegiance to Jesus Christ and his kingdom. This high-octane message is being reclaimed today, launching a spiritual insurgence.

This book shows how art was used to express the discontent and aspirations of Black America during the turbulent sixties and seventies. Following the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., many African Americans shifted their interest from the Civil Rights movement with its emphasis on integration and equality to Black Liberation with its emphasis on nationalism, self-determination and separation, socially and culturally. Some black artists decided to join the struggle, in what came to be known as the Black Arts Movement. Larry Neal defined this movement as being ?radically opposed to any concept of the artist that alienates him from his community. [It] is the aesthetic and spiritual sister of the Black Power concept [and,] as such, it envisions an art that speaks directly to the needs and aspirations of Black America. In order to perform this task, the Black Arts Movement programs a radical reordering of Western cultural aesthetics. It proposes a separate symbolism, mythology, critique and iconology.? The art of Mari Evans and Nelson Stevens exemplify the spirit of achievements and self-determination, consciously or not, that links them to the Black Art Movement. This book examines how Evans’ and Stevens’ ethos, fashioned by their lives and certain influences, causes each to create the messages that became their personal resistance, insurgence and defense against the ideological effects of racism.
