I have been quietly reading the LO digests for about a month and thought I
would it was time to introduce myself.

##Experience with the learning organisation concepts
- currently re-reading Senge, _The Fifth Discipline_.
- the language of LO is popular in the organisation in which I work, but
the main thrust at present is on macro restructuring of Federal-State
responsibilities with increasing Commonwealth government distance from
service delivery.
- Evaluation is a popular theme. I am involved in the evaluation of
program support activities to children's services funded through community
based organisations and of innovative child care services.
- I also subscribe to ARLIST-L, EVALTALK & GOVTEVAL.

##Questions you have, what you are curious about.

I have enrolled in a MSocAdmin at Flinders University (but have
intermitted till July 97). One focus of this is on the value and
usefulness of externally required evaluation to an organisation with a
particular focus on practitioners.

Any comments or advice welcome.
