PAPER | Disruptive Times Require Skilled Changemakers

Community Change

As an individual or organizational changemaker, we are often better at deploying program-based or focused strategies to solve simple problems than we are at shifting the systems which are holding the problem in place. Achieving deeper and more robust systems change, especially within communities, requires a new set of skills and mindsets that results in a different way of approaching and working through change.

This paper describes three elements that every changemaker needs when approaching complex challenges - a mindset shift, an agile and adaptable approach, and knowledge and skills in each of the five interconnected practice areas.
