Most complex systems do not fail for lack of resources.
If they fail, it is because diverse stakeholders do not know how to collaborate, there is inadequate support for leaders, or there is cultural resistance to innovation and change.
This is true of the systems that cause poverty and injustice.
People who want to help aren’t sure how. People who are most in need of help and see what’s needed have no voice.
Organizations work in silos with their own methodologies and ethos. Efforts are duplicated or omitted. Potential partners don’t know how to connect.
Opportunities for change are unrealized.
Fixing these systems requires more than making disparate stakeholders and resources known to each other or working on individual parts. It requires the convening power to bring all parties to the table, the ability to align forces and facilitate productive relationships.
Those relationships act as a circulatory system, carrying the knowledge, strength, wisdom and wherewithal required for lasting transformation.
