Mark Cabaj, President of the Canadian consulting company From Here to There and an Associate of Tamarack – An Institute for Community Engagement, worked with CFI to deliver a two-day workshop in March 2020 on Changing Systems, Power and Potential.

CFI Network member Fiona McKenzie observed and synthesised the learnings, discussions and perspectives into a report which captures contributions from both presenters and participants.

The result is a blend of concepts, frameworks, applications, hints and common threads that emerged about efforts to create system change. These are all documented in the report which is valuable to workshop participants and to anyone interested in systems change.


Included in the report is a ‘practice library’ that captures the great resources and recommendations of presenters and participants.

Systems change is by its nature uncertain and ever-changing, and our thinking should be as well. This resource is a signpost rather than a recipe and the thinking reflects a moment in time.
