What is the role of positive deviants in knowledge work of development organisations?

Hi everyone,

Following Nancy/Gauri's discussion and the recent Lucie/Charles discussion on 'moving away from knowledge products to knowledge sharing processes', here is a topic that is little explored but could have great potential in helping all of us develop an enabling environment for change, learning, critical reflection, sharing etc. This third episode in the new discussion series means that I will be collecting answers to the question for the next two weeks and then will provide an answer picking upon suggestions and ideas and will update the KM4Dev wiki.

The main question is basically the title of this email: What is (or could be) the role of positive deviants for knowledge work in development organisations?

To find out what positive deviants are and to prepare this general question about them I have posted some ideas and other leading questions here.

This discussion is simultaneously launched on the discussion group.
