MSC training in Cardiff, Wales 3 & 4 January 2019. Conducted by Dr Fiona Kotvojs

The Most Significant Change (MSC) story approach is a qualitative, participatory, approach to monitoring and evaluation which supports discussions between stakeholders about the actual impacts of the activity (both positive and negative). It facilitates change management and organisational learning. It is one approach which helps capture the uncountable things that count!

This hands-on training will allow you to plan and implement MSC as one tool in an evaluation or use it as part of a long term facilitation process. You will discover the situations in which MSC is and is not appropriate.

The training program will cover:
• Planning MSC,
• Implementing MSC (this includes collecting stories, selection panels, feedback, story verification),
• Reporting to clients,
• Issues associated with introducing MSC,
• When MSC is and is not an appropriate tool for evaluation and facilitation, and
• Challenges in implementing MSC.
• Introduction to quantitative analysis of MSC data.
• Introduction to using the computer program MSCdatabase to manage the MSC data and support secondary analysis of the MSC data.

If interested in participating, please email Dr Fiona Kotvojs at for further information.
