To support learning and familiarity with the tool, this pdf was shared by a member of the network of coaches for the Lab. It provides an example of how the multi-level theory of change tool can be used to explore change in the system for normal science, illustrating potential regime characteristics, landscape pressures and emerging niches, before going deeper in a stretch exercise that reflects on the dynamics of change across the levels, and the opportunities for experimentation within the system.



Our thanks to Michael for supporting the learning of other Lab users by generously sharing this example of how the tool can be applied in practice to a given topic.
