I am beginning to gather information on change management and theory of change in relation to SSR and I was hoping to get some input on some recommendations of where to start looking.
Essentially as SSR is a highly political endevour with winners and losers in the process, the field, from observation, could likely stand to be more informed by methods of how to manage these shifts.
Likewise, change management and theory of change could help for donors in tranlating lessons identified into practice. Too often the same mistakes are being seen over and over in programming, and many challanges are acknowledged, but often not fully tackled. Perhaps having a better framework in how to adapt programming could assist in making necessary changes.
Any suggestions on what has been written on these subjects in SSR or experience in these are areas would be greatly appreciated. Good refrences to management books would also be appreciated.
