You’ve heard the term, but what is Theory of Change? A theory of change works backwards from your charity’s overall aim, to understand all the steps involved in achieving it and map out how your day-to-day activities contribute to your mission. A theory of change can be the basis for clarifying your strategy, measuring your impact and thinking about your place in the sector.

This workshop will introduce you to the concept of Theory of Change, and will explain the different ways it can be used to help your organisation.

Together we will explore the following topics

  • Defining Theory of Change
  • When to use
  • What the process looks like
  • Benefits and challenges

By the end of the day, participants should be able to explain what theory of change is, understand its uses, and start to think about applying the technique at their organisation.

Who should attend

This workshop is particularly relevant for senior staff involved in developing the organisation’s strategy, and all staff who are involved in monitoring and evaluation.
