Welcome to the System Change online course of the Ashoka European Fellowship experience! Every week you will find on this page a set of videos providing you with theoretical background and practical exercises to refine your system change strategy. After you have watched the videos and attempted the weekly exercises, we will meet online every Friday for a one-hour videocall to discuss your challenges and opportunities with all the other participants: Ashoka Fellows, ASNs, Ashoka staff, partners, change leaders in education, social entrepreneurs participating in other Ashoka acceleration programs.
Before we start, please know that for the moment we would like to keep this content accessible just to the participants in this course. Please don't share the login details with anyone without asking Ashoka staff first.
Week 1: Introduction to System Change & Root Cause Analysis
This week we will give you an introduction to system change and we will already start deep diving into the root causes behind the social issue you are trying to tackle.
Week 4: Tools and Delivery Models
This week we move from a system to an organisational perspective and enter your work, your programs, products and services into the picture. In other words, this week we will ask ourselves the question: how do I help achieve the milestones of the system change journey?
Week 5: Partnerships
This week we will wrap up the last part of our main strategy development process. After having distilled the types of changes you want to see in the world through the first steps of this process, we are now completing the approaches you and your organisation can use to help bring about these changes.
Week 7: Funding System Change & Measuring social impact
This week we will take a step back and look at two important topics that you will have to deal with once your strategy is in place: funding and impact measurement.
