What are the capabilities we need for system change?
Submitted by Laura Winn from Forum for the Future
With the growing awareness and need to address complex challenges that the world faces we believe we need to rapidly grow the number of people who can think and act systemically, and implement radical change.
To address this challenge we at Forum for the Future want to work with others to help build the field of system change. Our main contribution is the development of an international learning programme – the School of System Change – that offers access to the best learning experiences, tools and case studies for a community of people building their skills in system change for sustainability.
So what are the skills and capabilities required to change systems? Through our experience and through working with others who are implementing system change we think there are five core capability areas that will help us develop curriculums, organise learning experiences and curate different tools and approaches.
