Big Bets: How Large-Scale Change Really Happens – On Presale Now

This October, Dr. Rajiv Shah, President of The Rockefeller Foundation, will publish a new book with stories—from his own career, the 110-year history of the Foundation, and leaders around the world—that reveal it is realistic to be optimistic about our capacity to make large-scale change.

Such a bold assertion might surprise you. In the face of climate change and other crises, too few of us can see what’s really possible amid so much distrust and disinformation. Our institutions, including governments and businesses, are also scrambling to keep up with today’s challenges.

Shah wrote Big Bets: How Large-Scale Change Really Happens because he wants to help leaders everywhere, and at every level, reimagine what’s possible. The book reveals the power of the big bet mindset: a belief that seeking to solve problems boldly, rather than settle for incremental improvements, will attract partners with the capacity to achieve transformational change.
