In this pioneering book, four senior managers of the global consultancy Booz Allen Hamilton show how leaders in business, government, and civil society can reach across national and sector divisions, forming collaborative “megacommunities” that are directed toward a common goal. The authors share the success stories of megacommunities already at work today, looking at examples that range from tackling monopolies to urban revitalization to conservation efforts. They also explain to leaders how to achieve balance between organizational differences and be able to operate optimally.
What Megacommunities around the globe can achieve:

IMPROVING ENERGY AVAILABILITY AROUND THE WORLD
In order to tackle one of today's major problems, local companies need to be working with national energy providers, residents, government bodies, NGOS, and universities

HELPING COMMUNITIES GROW
In changing neighborhoods like Harlem, the megacommunity includes local small businesses, community groups, global companies, and foundations like Bill Clinton's

CONSERVING THE ENVIRONMENT
In saving the world's rainforests, providers, distributors, sellers, and consumers of lumber team up with local communities, the World Wildlife Fund, and Goldman Sachs

PREVENTING THE SPREAD OF HIV/AIDS
In India, a megacommunity brings together both public, private, and civil-sector organizations, including PepsiCo, the Gates Foundation, U.S. healthcare experts, UN development programs, and local NGOs
