Alan Engelstad

Engelstad, Alan is adjunct professor at the Desaultels Faculty of Management, McGill University, where he teaches catalytic change strategies at the International Masters in Health Leadership. For over 20 years, Alan has advised private, health and social sector executives on how to achieve ambitious ends by minimalist means. Since first reading Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals while studying Public Health at the University of Minnesota, he has been fascinated by the many questions surrounding change in society and organizations and has been equally frustrated by the usual answers. This led him to reconsider how situations persist and change and to seek more effective ways to extend executive leverage and reach.
