System Mapping Toolkit

Report

The System Mapping Toolkit is a free, collaborative guide to help you make sense of complex challenges and to uncover opportunities for systemic change. It is designed for everyone who works with and within complex systems. The toolkit guides you through the most important steps of framing, mapping and reflecting on complex challenges. Along the journey, the toolkit gives you helpful background information to learn about systems thinking, its approach, and its unique language.
