Developing theories of change can be highly impactful in shaping an organization’s work but these important tools are often unknown, misunderstood, and underutilized. In this workshop for senior leaders and program managers, Sarah Glatt of Paper Crane Associates will share her observations gleaned from her extensive experience collaborating with organizations on their strategic planning and program development efforts and lay out why she sees theories of change as “hidden gems,” how theories of changes are used, and how they are created. Then in this interactive workshop, participants will work together to begin developing a theory of change for their organization or program.
