Making Change Happen, on a Deadline

September 30, 2011

While there’s a certain inherent satisfaction in keeping email flowing and making sure file shares are accessible it’s also nice to have a larger purpose to that effort.

A post on the New York Times Blog by Tina Rosenberg, Making Change Happen, on a Deadline, describes the remarkable results of the Rapid Results Institute in furthering development projects in Africa.

As described in the article, the Institute is an offshoot of a management consulting firm founded by my father, Robert H. Schaffer, over 40 years ago. The Rapid Results approach, known earlier as the Breakthrough Strategy, has been used in many areas of business, including IT, in addition to its use in international development.

I’ve been supporting this firm’s IT, telecom and general administration for the past 23 years. Not a bad use of my time it seems.
