Every community needs a roadmap for change. A theory of change (TOC) outlines how to create that change and is an essential part of a successful community transformation effort. Bradach states that a strong theory of change uses systems thinking and shows the cause and effects among part so the operating model and predicts how changes in one element affects another. While the model is simple, it helps an organization start with the long term social impact goal and then work your way backwards to develop a pathway to change, operationalize the resources, activities and ultimate outputs of the efforts.
