About this event

The Strategy Map tool in Outcome Mapping is often overlooked but embodies a crucial element of OM: the idea that we, as an organisation or programme, act to support change through our boundary partners and, for our actions to be effective, we should consider a variety of strategies. We can consider this our theory of action, distinguishing it from our theory of change, which is embodied in Boundary Partners, Outcome Challenges and Progress Markers.

This session will start with a reminder of the Strategy Map tool, before inviting the panellists to share some alternative tools for exploring strategies (or theories of action) and finishing off the session with a discussion.

Who is this for? This session is for people who are familiar with Strategy Maps and have some experience - maybe you haven’t found a use for them or maybe you’ve reinvented them.

Panellists: Mariam Smith, Phil Smith, Simon Hearn

Host: Jeph Mathias

Organiser Outcome Mapping Learning Community

Organiser of Rethinking Strategy Maps: Conversations on developing theories of action

The Outcome Mapping Learning Community is a global, informal, open membership network for sharing information and facilitating learning on using Outcome Mapping for planning, monitoring and evaluating complex interventions. It is one community among many in a growing field that recognises the complex and interconnected nature of developmental change work and hence the requirement for appropriate and adaptive management tools that emphasise individual and organisational learning. At a practical level, OMLC members support one another in learning and applying the Outcome Mapping methodology, showcase and exchange their experiences and contribute to the development of the methodology.
