The Most Significant Change technique is a dynamic qualitative and participatory monitoring and evaluation method. Through collecting stories of the impact of our program with the program stakeholders we analyse our work. Through this process of selecting the stories, change management and organizational learning is facilitated. MSC has a particular ability to capture impact in complex cross cultural social change contexts.
With the shift in monitoring and evaluation to a mixed methods approach MSC is a method that fills the gap in data collection. MSC gathers rich qualitative data that captures intangible impact and unexpected outcomes of the program.
This two day training presents MSC through practical examples and exercises. The training is designed for active learning.

• Understand how MSC works
