Meeting with the creator of Most Significant Change

I met with Rick Davies this week. He’s in Melbourne visiting his family and doing some work for Oxfam. We talked about the Zahmoo project and he made some very helpful suggestions. Rick asked me to make a link from the Zahmoo home page to the MSC guidebook that he and Jess Dart put together, which is now there. If you want to know how to do MSC this is the resource.

Rick made an interesting observation. He asked why we make so many of our ideas available noting that this behaviour was very unlike most consultants. Before I could answer he said, “would you like to be remembered for one idea or would you like to known as someone who can create and implement many ideas? It seems your website demonstrates the latter.”
