Thanks to Bob for sparking another wonderfully unpredictable evening of reading and writing the Scottish runes and thanks to all who came for their usual lively and surprising participation. 

Can it be usual and surprising at the same time?  Of course it can. We usually expect to learn and what are we learning if we aren't being surprised? 

Having been a little sceptical about the idea, I was particularly intrigued by the thoughtful fun we had playing hangman with concepts from development.  (Puzzled? You should've been there.)  Also intrigued by the mixed feelings about 'Scottishness'. 

Here are Bob's slides and notes and a link to the article I referred to about organisation development.

Article: e-O&P Has organisational development failed? 

(These are links to the files so you can 'right click' and 'save as' to your computer or just click to read on screen.) 

You'll remember Bob's final challenge was to start drafting a call for papers for a Scottish edition of the journal.  Here are the combined contributions. 


There seems to be some energy.  Let's meet again in the New Year and make some plans.
