This study is about using “positive deviance” (Singhal, Buscell, & Lindberg, 2010) regarding more effective crisis training in municipalities. We claim that by using the municipalities own “best practices” and although finding the problem definition, stress the importance of focusing on the solutions found within the municipality, and amplifying these success practices. This paper will explore the theoretical possibilities that lie in the use of “positive deviance” and present some examples from Norwegian municipalities, where this could have been implemented. The paper will also propose and present a pre-study regarding crisis training in a Norwegian municipality, using “positive deviance” as method for enhanced crisis training.
