Theory of Change – Achieving your intended impact
Theory of Change has become an increasingly popular measurement and evaluation tool used to implement social change in government agencies, international NGOs and other major organisations. At first glance it may appear to be just another unnecessary strategic change management tool. However, Theory of Change has proven to make a difference to social impact delivery. It helps to change the way of thinking about initiatives by mapping out causal pathways and working with clearly articulated assumptions. In addition, it is becoming a necessary tool to engage with funders, stakeholders and beneficiaries.
