Gaining Systemic Insight

We have updated this website with the Mesopartner Systemic Insight Approach. This approach has been developed by Mesopartner as a guide for practitioners that are entering into a complex environment to implement a change initiative.  It guides organizations and practitioners through a whole cycle of a change initiative and can be applied in all different fields of economic development like local and regional economic development, (global) value chain development, making markets work for the poor, cluster development, etc. The approach is based on the principles and ideas around intervening in complex systems. It also takes into account, that not all problems we are facing are complex and we need to be able to differentiate between different types of problems as we need to use different strategies to tackle them.

We see Systemic Insight as a very organic and evolving approach, not something that is finished and can be published. We are applying it in our daily work. Still, we keep improving and adjusting the approach as we go along. We hope to capture these developments and more in the Systemic Insight Blog. We always appreciate your feedback, comments, and experiences to keep improving.

We are also working on a background working paper providing you with the theoretical introduction to complexity and complex systems that builds the basis for the Systemic Insight Approach.
