‘Most significant change’ (MSC) is a technique or methodology that can be used for staff development in the Australian vocational education and training (VET) sector. This short publication sets out the core ideas behind this technique or methodology and provides some examples of how it was used in VET for forums conducted by Reframing the Future in 2008. MSC involves the collection and analysis of stories about change resulting from a program, project or initiative, and the identification of the most significant change or impact of that initiative.
