A guide presenting a toolkit of methods useful for systemic change programmes.

Those involved in systemic change programmes - funders, practitioners and evaluators - come from a wide range of backgrounds with a wide range of skills. This results in advisers helping programmes adopt the systemic approach often getting requests for shortcuts from those unfamiliar with different aspects of programme lifecycles. They are seeking a quick way of understanding what they could use, or what others have used, to develop, implement and evaluate interventions, and why.

The guide aims to describe the toolkit of methods which is useful for systemic change programmes. It briefly covers what the method is, where it should be deployed, and some strengths and weaknesses.
