"THINKING LIKE A POLICY ENTREPRENEUR IS PERHAPS MORE IMPORTANT THAN PICKING AN EXISTING ROLE IN THE POLICY WORLD... HOW SOCIAL CHANGE HAPPENS AND DISCOVER WHAT “GAPS” ARE NOT BEING FILLED. IDENTIFYING AND FILLING THESE GAPS CAN HAVE MORE IMPACT THAN SIMPLY ASSUMING ALL THAT CAN BE DONE IS BEING DONE."
