Outcome Mapping is an approach to evaluative thinking and practice which embeds a particular way of thinking about development and social change. Planning, adaptively learning, and demonstrating results in continuously changing and unpredictable environments requires using systems concepts and methods suited to complexity.
Outcome Mapping was designed for use in complex contexts where the pathways to success are unpredictable and emergent. It can help us to see changes in our systems that are unexpected or unplanned and allows us to monitor and evaluate who specifically is changing, and in what ways the changes demonstrate significant patterns of progress.
While we can’t predict the future - especially with COVID19 - Outcome Mapping, and the core concepts, principles and philosophies that drive the practice, can help us engage in the continuous co-creation of sustainable and socially equitable change processes. Listen as Heidi and Pamela outline this exciting approach to community change!
