Guiding Coalition

Not realising the importance of the transitional team as a powerful guiding coalition, ie people in the coalition must have respect and status within the organisation and include key line managers. It must be more than just another committee. Two interesting historical examples:

i) Charles Darwin had his own alliance or "change team" to advocate his theory of evolution. This team consisted of 4 eminent scientists (3 Englishmen and 1 American):e
        - Charles Lyell (human archaeology and prehistory specialist)
        - Joseph Hooker (botanist)
        - Thomas Henry Huxley (zoologist and comparative anatomist)
        - Asa Gray (US-based botanist)

These 4 were his first followers who supported his ideas and championed them

ii) Jesus Christ with his 12 disciples who spread his teachings after his death
