Mindmap : Positive Deviance Approach

November 4th, 2010 Posted in Change Tags: , ,

I think you will spend 36 seconds reading this post

Positive Deviance is a strength-based approach that tries to identify people which, despite the same conditions and limitations, get to strive in a particular context and then have the community replicate their successful behaviors. Very participative, the approach uses lots of open questions and whole system involvement to help communities fix their problems byidentifying and replicating on what some of their members (the so called “positive deviants”) are doing.

The PD Initiative has some very good guides (including a Basic starting guide) available to download along with stories and other interesting resources: go check by yourself!

I just created a mindmap out of the guides available on the Positive Deviance Initiative web site and uploaded it onto BiggerPlate.
