  • Redesigning Our Theories of Theories of Change, Peter H Jones + Ryan J A Murphy (ST-ON 2020/11/19)
    While the term “theory of change” is often used by funders expecting an outcome of systems change for their investment, is there really a theory there?

Murphy (Memorial U. of Newfoundland) to extend talks that they had given over a few days for the […]

  • Beyond the Tavistock and S-cubed legacy
