Systemcraft Labs: catalysing change at pace and scale

Tailored workshops for change-leaders and systems entrepreneurs

Systemcraft is Wasafiri’s framework for action. It offers a powerful toolkit for catalysing systems-change, and is designed to help you think in new ways about the messy, complex problems you’re grappling with.

It’s practical, actionable and will help you unlock new ways to identify “What next? It’s been forged from our experience on the front lines of some of the world’s toughest problems, and is grounded in leading thinking from the complexity sciences and contemporary systems research.

Our Labs are built around your issues and designed to generate actionable insights from day one. Through fast-paced, highly interactive sessions, our facilitators will introduce key systems concepts, and work live with your team to bring it immediately to bear upon your most pressing issues. You’ll learn about:

  1. The nature of complexity and complex problems
  2. The framework of systemcraft and it’s five dimensions for action
  3. A toolkit for assessing barriers, entry points and opportunities
  4. A common language and approach for more collective action

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