Social movements can be messy, and are often hard to quantify. So if you’re helping to build a movement, how do you know how well you’re doing?

This tool, developed by Tearfund, helps movement leaders and partner staff to assess progress in movement building and plan for future action.

It works best as a template for conversation among small groups. While it may also be used with wide groups of partners, it assumes common understandings of terms and movement building concepts that must be built up over time.
