Thanks for your thoughts, Bob. We have used Adaptive Action and Pattern Logic (CDE) in many contexts and locales over the past 13 years. Kindergarten children in Calif use it to support shared literacy. NGO CEOs in Delhi use it to guide collaborative change. Conservation scientists use it to create a praxis based on evaluative and systems thinking. Peace policy analysts and practitioners use it to design anti-corruption interventions in Sub Saharan Africa. Middle managers of an international ag corp use it to create networks for learning and change. Check out some stories of peace applications here http://www.hsdinstitute.org/resources/peace-is-a-pattern.html. Sophisticated simplicity--nice description of the work!
