Few topics inspire as much confusion and debate as systemic change. What is it? How do you measure it? Does it even matter?

Assessing changes in systems might be more doable than you think. This webinar will explore a back-to-basics approach to assessing system change.

In November 2019, thirty results measurement specialists, managers and consultants got together in Bangkok. They took part in workshops on a back-to-basics approach to assessing system changes, applying it to cases from participants’ programmes. Since then, the insights from the workshop have been further developed into a pragmatic approach to assessing system changes that builds on what programmes are actually doing and learning from practice. It can be: 

  • applied by programmes using a variety of different systemic change frameworks
  • applied across a variety of sectors
  • implemented with internal resources using familiar methods for information gathering

The speakers will walk through the approach using examples from the 2019 workshop, including PRISMA in Indonesia and Skills for Jobs (S4J) in Albania.

An open discussion will follow and we encourage comments and examples from practitioners assessing changes in systems in their own contexts.
