This article identifies six renegade roles that fall evenly into two categories: (1) Reactive Renegades, and (2) Proactive Renegades. The Reactive Renegade roles include: The Detective, The Instigator, and The Reactor. The Proactive Renegade roles include: The Visionary, The Architect, and The Builder. In case after case experience has shown that while one individual could play more than one renegade role, the success stories resulted from the collaboration of multiple people encompassing at least all three roles within each category. In other words a reactionary change requires The Detective, The Messenger, and The Reactor. Proactive changes require The Visionary, The Designer, and The Builder.
