I think we need to make a bunch of t-shirts or posters of that image and hand them out to any and all takers in the development community. Also, I don't really understand why people have this idea: "Many people in the development community tell me that they agree with the idea of muddling (conceptually), but don't see how it can be done in developing countries or in governments where politicians are looking for solutions and want the solutions 'yesterday'." It seems to me that reform processes in any given country (not just developing countries) that involve (behavior change of) multiple groups of agents with competing priorities and incentives have to be characterized by some amount of "muddling through". What is the alternative, that reform plans can be formulated and implemented as is with the expectation that all stakeholders will passively buy in?
