|Positive Deviance - ‘spot the novel in the familiar’|
When evaluating project impact, there is always a distribution of results. Positive Deviance asks the community itself to identify and investigate the outliers, not the norms. To ‘spot the novel in the familiar’.
More difficult than it sounds - this requires development "experts" to give up the 'answers looking for problem to solve' project approach.
Richard Pascale, Jerry & Monique Sternin describe this powerful new idea in their book The Power of Positive Deviance. Click here.
