The DIF – Design Iteration Format – is a tool to help you design a model to create lasting change at a big scale and an organization that can take it there. The DIF process guides you through an initial (or remedial) iteration of design that can serve as the vehicle for a continuous process of refinement and evolution.

We put a lot of emphasis on the eight-word mission statement, the single impact indicator, and the behavior mapping. All of these pieces help to inform the shape that an organization takes, and the interventions that match up with each behavior you're trying to change.

Our video lesson on designing for impact at scale compliments the process the form takes you through.
