The Building a Systems Change Initiative Theory of Change helps to visually organize the focal areas and intended outcomes of systems change initiatives. This version provides annotations to guide users through the process to develop their own Theory of Change for their systems change initiative and includes specific examples using Nemours’ Harnessing Opportunity for Positive, Equitable Early Childhood Development Project (Project HOPE). Click here for the resource.
This fillable form for the Building a Systems Change Initiative Theory of Change can be downloaded here separately without annotations. This version allows users to enter their systems change initiative focal areas and intended outcomes into a shareable PDF file. The organization completing this theory of change can also place their logo in the bottom right corner of the fillable form. Click here for the fillable form.
