In Chapter 1, we discussed the benefits of conducting rapid evidence reviews in unpacking the problem and discovering what others around the world have done to address it. In Chapter 2, we take take a big picture view of the problem and how it occurs within a system.
As a society, we are dealing with increasingly complex problems and working in environments where there are many competing agendas. To build a shared understanding of the problem and uncover insights on the changes that organisations can make - and those which may be out of their control - we use systems, process, actor and influence mapping to identify the individuals, groups and organisations involved in the problem - and who may be part of the solution.
