Counting in the form of statistical data is almost always a good indicator of past and present discrimination; counting as an action plan in the form of a quota is usually not. This article examines the issue of affirmative action from the perspective of an analytical approach developed and published in the context of higher education between 1983 and 1986. It is shown how these ideas are being extended as a proactive tool in the context of changing management projects.
