Transformation and large systems change is not something that can be planned. However, understanding change pathways can support strategies to enhance our ability to produce desired futures. Systems mapping provides a range of ways to visualise change systems, a concept that is introduced here as critical to understanding change pathways. This is followed by a proposal of how to look at the DNA of these systems through two additional concepts: five sub-systems and seven functions in each of those systems.
