Testing New Ideas
A theory of change is a roadmap to help you connect your work to your bigger end goal.
Gathering feedback from stakeholders on a simple prototype provides valuable perspectives on what resonates with those who will be using your final solution.
Building the first prototype allows you to explore the feasibility of your idea and discover other approaches to building it.
Before developing a prototype, it is important to identify the assumptions that inform the hypotheses at each step along the theory of change.
