An outline of each phase of the method can be viewed using the menu on the right.
How CHAMPS2 works
CHAMPS2 divides transformational change into eight phases, which are illustrated below. These phases guide us from the beginning (the strategic need) to the end (the strategic Outcome).
The eight phases are broken down into stages, each one of which will achieve a specific objective; for example, determining strategic needs.
Within the stages are a varying number of activities that can be followed to complete the stage.
There are example stages (numbered 1.1-1.6) and activities (labelled 1.5.1-1.53) in the middle of the diagram below. The bottom section shows the link with examples, templates and 'how to' guides which support the method. These can be found in the free online CHAMPS2 Knowledge Centre.
