In this personal account Rolf Lynton examines significant episodes from his long and distinguished career as an international systems consultant, hands-on trainer and chief executive in manpower and institution development. The episodes are examined in three ways: How did the work come about? What actually took place by way of involvements, interventions (planned and unplanned) and outcomes? What, with hindsight, might be done better in similar circumstances. Often in cross-cultural settings, his work includes: strikes in a world-class port; coal mine management; `decentralizing` public services; innovating in communities and corporations; starting and administering a professional school; interdisciplinary work in universities and professional associations.
