MICRO-IMPROVEMENTS, MEGA IMPACT
Micro-Improvements approach restores Agency.
Agency is defined as one’s independent capability to act for one’s own as well as collective well-being. In a complex, real-world system, there are factors, actors and interactions that are beyond one’s locus of control. Thus, any conversation around systemic change that dwells upon intermediate and long-term change (outcomes) inherently leaves actors with a sense of lack of agency.
Thus, the approach enables a virtuous cycle of regenerative change powered by the mantra of I have, I can, I wish among the practitioners, thereby restoring their agency.
This is a four part series on Micro Improvements. Read the previous pieces on how micro improvements is just another term for change and the scientific rationale behind it and the following piece on how micro improvements catalyse exponential social change.
