The Systems Innovation Network

The Systems Innovation Toolkit is designed as an open-source set of modules that can be combined to support a systems change initiative.

The building blocks of the toolkit are the canvases. Each canvas deals with one key aspect of systems innovation; the canvas will help you think through and develop a response to a key question you will need an answer to. For example who are the actors in the system? How will I design a narrative for change? How will I assess the impact we are having?

Canvases Sections

  • Ideating-These canvases help you think in systems to change the paradigm and start to see new possibilities.
  • Building- Canvases for developing new ecosystems; connecting people and resources in new ways andscaling change
  • Map- These canvases help you make a holistic inquiry by mapping out the actors, structure and dynamics of the system.
  • Changing- Canvases for working with transition processes; finding points to intervene in the network to effectively influence change

These building blocks can be accessed and used as individual modules or they can be strung together to form a process depending on the time horizon of the initiative.
