Lean Impact is a must read for anyone trying to figure out how to best have meaningful impact in the development sector.
The layout of the book was very clear, with bite-sized mini-segments that helped to orient readers and provided clear examples of practice that matched to theory. Excellent illustrations and metaphors/analogies to help guide readers along the journey of why our current system works the way it does and what specific exceptional organizations are doing within this ecosystem to help advance true innovation.
I really liked that the book was nuanced regarding how tricky it is to implement such a strategy. For example, understanding how incentives can be misaligned or where technology is better vs. other types of solutions (i.e., for data collection). Other sections I really enjoyed had to do with how to deal with failure in the context of the non-profit sector as well as all the many forms of hybrid financing and concrete numbers on what works/doesn't work and why.
The only suggestion I'd have is I hope that there's an online resources / forum part that complements the book where where people working in the social sector can trade notes on what's working/not working for them when they aim to implement lean impact methods and/or where they can download certain tools online (or via another channel) to design what they need even if it's just questions that guide their thinking on the best approach.
Overall, highly recommend this book for anyone with an interest in advancing development via newer, better methodologies!
