Transcript: The diagram on it's own isn't enough We need to document our assumptions and explain their relevance We can also add barriers to progress & risks A narrative Why do we do a theory of change? We all come with different beliefs and values, we will have different opinions - this is ok! Theory of Change - what's the big idea? ToC is different things to different people To make sure we're measuring the right things Discussion, challenge & debate Assumption: The reporting guidelines are well written, comprehensive and understandable Fish soup Step 1: Gather in 4 groups according to result areas Step 2: Review your result area 'outcome statement' from our project logic model Step 3: In your groups, brainstorm one simple question: 'How will we achieve (your outcome)' Think of everything that needs to happen and arrange according to activities & outputs (activities on one colour, outputs on another) (20 mins) It's a product of the people involved A combination of expertise, experience and vision Assumption: We all have similar values and get on with each other Example of a theory of change Assumption: Everyone understands what we mean by a Theory of Change... To create a foundation for our evaluation PEOPLE A map of the logical sequence of how your activities and outputs will lead to your goal Put differently, it's our mental model of how change happens Assumptions A diagram Step 4: Look through all project activities from the bid - do they match what you have brainstormed? Select the ones that do and place them on your flipchart (10 mins) Step 5: Start making the links between your activities and your outputs using string - every time you make a connection, list down any assumptions you are making (20 mins) For us, it's not a strict planning tool, but a less formal 'way of thinking' about how our project is expected to work What goes into a Theory of Change? To make the connections between our result areas and change objectives Our Theory of Change! For a shared vision of the change we want to see - and how we think we'll get there What is Theory of Change?
