Our article in the fall 2013 issue of the Stanford Social Innovation Review.

In this article, co-authored with leaders from KaBOOM! and Share Our Strength, we argue that the social sector must shift its attention from modest goals that provide short-term relief to bold goals that, while harder to achieve, aim to tackle social problems at the magnitude they exist.

Where to Start: Setting a Bold Goal

Why do some social change efforts achieve transformational results while others only make incremental progress? We have found that change agents push beyond compelling but often ambiguous visions and mission statements and instead define success with bold, long-term goals.

Social Transformation Lifecycle

A tool to help you ask the powerful questions necessary for gauging and advancing your progress toward transformational change.

This tool draws from our client work and in-depth research on efforts that have tackled social problems at the magnitude they exist. Although this work is complex and messy, we’ve found that transformational efforts often progress through a common set of stages. Across each stage, there are critical questions with which change agents must wrestle, and ultimately answer to make progress. We would encourage you to locate your efforts within this lifecycle and consider which questions to begin answering.
