The Institution Builder’s Toolbox: Strategies for Negotiating Change


So, You Wanna Build an Institution!

Both our work and private lives require us to build new institutions or renovate old ones, from launching a business in your home to creating a new corporate division at work, from establishing a local charter school to organizing an athletic club with friends.

Drawing on his remarkable six-decade career of building institutions around the world, Jeswald W. Salacuse has written a book to guide you skillfully through the challenges of institution building, from articulating the institutional vision to securing the resources to make it happen. The Institution Builder’s Toolbox: Moves for Negotiating Change expertly advises readers on how to negotiate each of the seven developmental phases necessary to build a robust institution.
