Working with useful theory of change

Mayne builds upon the behaviour-based Theory of Change he introduced earlier. This article discusses a variety of concepts, approaches and tools for working with these ToCs.

The article presents and discusses several different levels of detail for representing a ToC, including a new pathway-level ToC model. Each has different strengths and weaknesses, and serves different purposes. For the ToC models that are more detailed, the article then discusses the characteristics of and criteria for robust ToCs. This is followed by a discussion of Theory of Change Analysis, a new analysis tool that can be used to strengthen ToCs as well as the intervention designs they represent.
