Systemcraft Certificate

A practical approach to tackling complex problems 


14-15 NOV

A two day training in using Systemcraft to tackle complex, intractable and downright messy problems.

Wasafiri works with leaders and organisations to tackle some of humanity’s toughest problems. Through our work on issues such as countering violent extremism, climate change, and agricultural reform in Africa, we have developed ‘Systemcraft‘- an applied approach to complex change that helps leaders and organisations:

  • Understand the nature of complex problems (and why they can seem so stuck)
  • Answer the question “so what do I do next?” in order to effect change

Systemcraft can be applied to any complex problem. Whether you are seeking to create culture change within your business or organisation, tackle long term sustainability issues, integrate the Sustainable Development Goals into your organisation or take on complex social issues such as affordable housing; Systemcraft can help you work out – “so what do I do next?

Our two day certificate training programme will give you:

1. An applied understanding of what a complex problem really is (and is not)

2. An applied understanding of what it means to use a systems-based approach to change

3. Confidence to use the Systemcraft Tool to create practical change

4. A network of like minded change leaders

5. A certificate qualification as a Systemcraft practitioner

The course will be practical and experiential with a small group. There will be a mix of theory, case studies and practical exercises and you will also have a chance to work directly on your own complex change challenge.


1. Those interested in using a systems approach to tackle complex or ‘wicked problems’

2. Corporate, Public Sector or Not-for-Profit leaders asking themselves ‘what do I do next?” in the face of a complex problem

3. Those working in international development, social movements, or on social change issues
