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.

Earth’s last hope relied on the mission to Xeoron, to save the captive from the horrid alien virus that claimed so many lives and plagued mankind for over three centuries. The mission would also set those bound on the alien planet free, even if it meant giving their own lives. The team had trained most of their lives for the mission, with many entering the Academy of Space Exploration as young as twelve years old. Now the launch propelled their starship into space at warp speed to a planetary system on the other side of the galaxy. The team sought to free the humans held captive there, whether dead or alive and to bring back a cure to save mankind and to save planet Earth from an alien invasion and annihilation. But the underlying possibility of captivity on Xeoron and failure to complete the mission hung in the air, would they succeed in saving Earth and mankind? Insurgence is the first book of The Realm of Xeoron series. A space opera sci-fi series with genetic engineering, colonization on an alien planet, and contact with aliens.

Most of the contemporary work pertaining religious-sectarian conflict is focused on insurgents driven by socio-economic and political grievances. In Politics and Economics of the Insurgence in Bahrain, Vladmir E. Remmer analyzes the political economy of religious-sectarian intra-state conflict in connection to contemporary theory of Instruments of National Power. This approach provides valuable insight on legitimization, mobilization, and operationalization of the indigenous surrogate force where nation-states and non-state actors compete for influence over target audiences for the opportunity to advance ideological and economic interests. In search for answers to nature and persistence of the conflict, Remmer reviews organizational structure and legitimacy. He dissects pertinent economic, political, and ethno-anthropological causes. Throughout the process, the author strongly emphasizes the Shiite community as an innocent victim of predation by an agent engaged in a political-ideological act of state-capture. The conflict mitigation recommendations evolve from discussion of select instruments of national power as a case appropriate artifice targeting root-cause of the insurgence. About the Author Vladimir E. Remmer is The Daily Caller opinion contributor; he holds advanced degrees in Chemical Engineering and Political Science. As a government contractor and in private capacity, he harvested and analyzed open source intelligence pertaining to political violence movements, economic targeting, and energy security. He traveled through Europe and Middle East where he conducted research involving numerous interviews in the field pertaining to his professional interests. Remmer volunteers his time to lecture on conflict mitigation, counter-terrorism, and international relations.
