How do you get things done?

As in: How do you advance your agenda? How do you work with others to implement change? How do you deliver the project?

The answers reveal your theory of change, your beliefs about how change happens.

Those beliefs guide your actions.

Actions lead to outcomes.

Outcome + outcome + outcome + outcome ... leads to the change we're all after.

The best theories of change are learned. They're improved by incorporating what worked. They challenge the assumptions behind what hasn't.

Every theory of change starts with assumptions. Well-founded and considered assumptions help to ensure you get to where you want to go.

Incorrect and unconsidered assumptions guarantee you won't. That alone makes it worth thinking about how you get things done.
