Metaphor: Nurturing Seeds

Much like the challenges of effectively crafting strategy, nurturing seeds requires us to know what type of trees are best suited to the area, what threats they face, how many are needed, and what resources we have available to grow them.

This phase of the research project was about moving from generating systems sight, to gaining insight about what types of interventions may influence targeted systems change, and assessing where and how to use resources available to grow and sustain those interventions .

Much like nurturing seeds and growing them into seedlings, strategy needs to be in constant dialogue with delivery to give them the best chance of survival by ensuring that we adapt to the changing conditions and landscapes.
