This book offers insights into how the Theory of Change framework can be effectively employed in a wide range of social interventions. Presenting its potential to support strategy and strategic thinking, this book offers an entry point to understanding how Theory of Change can be applied beyond the typical domain of aid projects.

Written by leading scholars and practitioners in the field, the book applies a range of case studies to explore how Theory of Change can be implemented in projects and programmes on different scales. Bringing together cases from different geographic, social, economic and cultural contexts, it demonstrates how Theory of Change can be adapted and help projects to replicate, and showcases the different ways in which practitioners can utilise it.

Strategic Thinking, Design and the Theory of Change will be essential reading for both professionals already working with Theory of Change and academics interested in strategy, organisation studies, innovation management, design research and project management. Graduate and undergraduate students will also find the book’s practical approach and intensive use of case studies of value.

‘Strategic Thinking, Design and the Theory of Change offers a novel and exciting contribution to nudge transformation towards a more sustainable, inclusive and equitable society. The book will be important reading when designing impactful and transformational social interventions. I warmly recommend the book introducing and concretizing topics such as designerly perspective, scales of action, participation and complexity in the context of the Theory of Change.’
