Theory of Change

Developing a theory of change can help your organization move from the existing conditions to the goal state.  A theory of change can help shape a campaign - who to target and what strategies and tactics to use - and keep the campaign rooted in its fundamental values.  There are many models available.  This is just one example.

Developing Strategy

Strategies help us get from point A to point B.  Fleshing out key strategy details ensures that an organizations resources and time get used most effectively and are focused on the goal of the strategy.  This is an example of strategic planning and includes some of the key questions that need to be answered when designing a strategy.

Power Mapping

Power Mapping is a visual tool that can help analyze power relationships around an issue or an agenda.  It is a framework for problem solving through relationship building.
