The theory of change approach at organisational level facilitates an in-depth exploration of values, beliefs and world views on how change happens.
Furthermore, it analyses stakeholders, systems and power to ascertain where the organisation can collaborate and partner to add the most value.
Many organisations work across contexts with variable spheres of influence. The approach enables them to explore, research and evidence alongside listening to a wide range of perspectives to scrutinise how they can most effectively contribute towards change.
This learning paper builds on the collective experience of individuals from organisations that have undertaken an organisational theory of change as well as some that elected not to utilise a theory of change approach in their organisational strategy.
