We equip leaders and organisations with the knowledge and tools to tackle complex issues

Our Institute harvests and shares our learning from working on some of the world’s most complex problems.  We’re constantly collaborating with leaders, thinkers, entrepreneurs and practitioners to deepen our understanding of how to generate positive impact at scale. We’ve developed Systemcraft as a practical framework for strengthening systems leadership and incubating transformational approaches to systems-change. 

Our Work

Systemcraft Labs. Co-creating new responses to real-world issues: Through fast-paced, highly interactive labs, our facilitators will introduce Systemcraft and work live with your team to bring it immediately to bear upon your most pressing issues. You will leave with powerful new approaches for shifting entrenched systems and scaling change. Labs last 1-3 days and can be delivered virtually or in-person. For more information, click here.

Strategy Development. Applying Systemcraft to unearth new approaches for tackling complex problems: We combine systems-change expertise from the Institute with capabilities from our consultancy practice to help clients innovate new approaches and identify strategic pathways to impact at scale.

Systemcraft Coaching. Tailored support for change leaders: Our personalised coaching pairs change leaders with an experienced thought-partner armed with a powerful analytical framework to help answer “what next?” when working on complex problems. A tailored programme provides regular inflection points to draw new insights, identify new opportunities, and build new skills.

Systemcraft Seminars. Inspiring a new generation of change leaders: Leaders across the public and private sector are increasingly expected to manage complexity and large-scale system change but are rarely offered practical frameworks to do so. Wasafiri’s practitioners provide powerful keynote presentations and seminars to inspire and equip the next generation of change leaders.

“I really enjoyed the Systemcraft innovation sessions and found them not just thought provoking, but action provoking!”
