Great article! It would seem that a group of intelligent individuals following your guidelines would be successful at affecting change but then you have this counter-intuitive finding from recent research:

“An early effort at defining general intelligence in groups suggests that individual brainpower contributes little to collective smarts.

Instead, it’s social awareness — the ability to pick up on emotional cues in others — that seems to determine how smart a group can be.”

Now it is just one study but it does point toward some interesting implications for organizational change.
