  • Obama Campaign 13.5 million people contributed towards the campaign4,000 young people trained full-timeThousands of local leadership teams trained, deployed and taking responsibility for achieving objectives in local communitiesThe numbers are striking - key conditionsObama had a story of hope
  • There should not be homeless shelters, food banks.
  • - The recipe is essential - Recipes are tested to assure replicability of later efforts- No particular expertise; knowing how to cook increases success- Recipe notes the quantity and nature of “parts” needed- Recipes produce standard products- Certainty of same results every time

  • - Formulae have only a limited application- Raising one child gives no assurance of success with the next- Expertise can help but is not sufficient, relationships are key- Can’t separate parts from the whole- Every child is unique- Uncertainty of outcome remains
