The Community Builder’s Approach to Theory of Change is a method that a community group can use to think critically about what is required to bring about a desired social change. It is a process designed to depict how a complex change initiative will unfold over time. It creates an illustration of all the various moving parts that must operate in concert to bring about a desired outcome.

Our approach to theory of change requires stakeholders to be precise about the type of changes they want to achieve. This often requires participants to adhere to a level of conceptual clarity that they are not accustomed to, which is why we think it is necessary to have a skilled facilitator at the helm, managing the process.
