POSITIVE DEVIANCE: A NEW PARADIGM FOR SOCIAL AND ORGANIZATIONAL CHANGE?

Seminar - Department of Management and Engineering
FEK RESEARCH SEMINAR SERIES 2016/2017 Speaker: Arvind Singhal (University of Texas at El Paso) Arvind Singhal will discuss in his workshop the Positive Deviance (PD) approach to social change as an innovative method that enables communities and organizations to discover the health wisdom they already have and to act on it. The premise of PD is that in every community there are certain individuals or institutions whose uncommon behaviors or practices enable them to find better solutions to problems than their peers who have access to the same resources. The behaviors and practices of these individuals or institutions are ‘positive’ because they are doing things right, and ‘deviant’ because they engage in behaviors and practices that most others do not.
