For many organizations and individuals, the concept of systems change is difficult to grasp and even more challenging to apply in their daily work.

In this virtual coffee chat, FSG Senior Consultant Hayling Price leads a conversation with New Profit Managing Partner Tulaine Montgomery and John Kania, FSG board member, New Profit Executive in Residence, and coauthor of the recent article “The Water of Systems Change” (2018). Hayling, Tulaine, and John discuss how one can tackle the concepts and conditions involved with systems change work.

This virtual coffee chat was held on January 24, 2019, and was hosted in partnership by the Collective Impact Forum, FSG, and New Profit.
