Theory of Change Overview and Approach

A TOC (Theory of Change) describes the overall focus and approach for creating change: a process of planned social (or other) change, from the assumptions that guide its design to the long-term goals it seeks to achieve. This TREC resource will give you a greater understanding of the role a Theory of Change plays for your organization and how to develop and apply one to your organization.

Our supplemental Theory of Change Summary and Template asks the right questions to assist you in developing your organization’s Theory of Change.
