System change does not attempt to tackle specific symptoms but instead change the structure of the system to make it more resilient and sustainable. As such what we wish to measure for with system change is not the change in any part of the system but the quality, integrity, and function of the whole system. This is a different kind of metric to traditional impact measures one that accounts for the change in structure and pattern - metrics relating to changes in connections rather than parts. This canvas will walk you through asking and answering key considerations when assessing as systems change initiative and systems health generally.
