Thanks David. I thought I'd fixed it but must have done something wrong as the fix didn't register. I think I've done it now though so hopefully the link will work.
Best regards

Hi, David

Thank you for your question about the missing contents of the Vol 13, No 3 Aug 2006 issue of O&P on Explication.

Yes, I was responsible for thi issue, which is the only reason I spotted their omission!

Here are the details (see below). Let me know if you'd prefer them as a Word document.

I hope this helps. Best wishes. Bob

Hi David
Thank you for your welcome.

I found out about your site by searching "organizational development" on Twitter. It's great to find a community of like-minded people, although participating in meetings could be a bit challenging from the other side of the globe - !

Regards,
Caryl
