The presidential campaign trail – no matter what side of the aisle you may be on – can be a microcosm of changes that will eventually take hold in the broader society. For instance: rapid response to events – never letting a news cycle pass without responding to a charge – started with political campaigns, and is now embedded in the DNA of most every corporation and organization. Henry DeSio served as the Chief Operating Officer of Obama for America in 2008, did a stint in the White House as Deputy Assistant to the President, and is now helping young people navigate the new strategic landscape driven by rapid change. He is the Global Chair for Framework Change at Ashoka.
