PATHWAYS OF CHANGE:
'Pathways of Change' Systemic Frameworks
Vikāra Institute has developed frameworks to understand Pathways of Change for multiple market systems. These frameworks guide users in thinking systemically about possible pathways of change a particular market system may take as the system becomes more inclusive and competitive. The frameworks consider the patterns of behavior that drive the market system, and the forces that support that change process.
The 'Change Wheel' frameworks depict behavior change within core market systems (typically the retail distribution network system and the supply chain management system). In addition, the frameworks explore behavior change within the systems that act as counterbalances & reinforcements to change that takes place in the core market systems (the support services systems, business services systems, and other interconnected systems).
The Change Wheel frameworks can be used to better understand the relationship between different interventions on market systems, to identify the areas to work on, and to assess which stage of change could be targeted to create a more inclusive market system. The Change Wheel frameworks provide a more holistic overview and understanding of system change than a more linear results chain.
