One of our primary activities is to develop a shared analysis around building long-term power. We’re starting by trying to develop a deep shared understanding of each other’s theories of change. Specifically:

  • What are you doing, and why?
  • Why do you believe this?
  • What’s working?
  • What’s not working?
  • Where is there alignment?
  • Where is there disagreement?

We also want to do a landscape analysis where we map what everyone is doing and where.

  • Which lanes are different leaders / orgs in?
  • Where are the gaps?

Ultimately, we’d like to align around a stake-in-the-ground long-term North Star and surface some key strategic questions, which will help drive our experiments.


This will start with one-on-one conversations focused on developing validated shared understanding of each other’s theories of change around long-term power building. Every org should talk to every other org.
