Develop aim and change theory

Developing your aim and change theory is an exciting and crucial step in the improvement journey which naturally leads on from taking time to understand how the system is currently performing. Teams undertaking improvement projects need to be able to articulate exactly what they want to improve, including what ‘better’ looks like (Aim) and how they think they will do that (Change Theory).  Once a clear improvement aim has been identified by the team they will be ready to develop meaningful theories and ideas for changes which can then be tested.
