ChangeLabs works with industry, governments, research institutions, philanthropic foundations, and think tanks to create platforms for scaled transformations. We use our methodology to craft new initiatives, train leaders, and embed the ChangeLabs approach into organizations. Our offerings include:
Scaled Transformation Initiatives
Stanford ChangeLabs works closely with our partners over 6-24 month engagements to bring about scaled impact in the context of a complex challenge. ChangeLabs System Acupuncture™ to create intervention pathways that bring about systemic change. Some projects focus on developing strategic pathways and platforms, while others are centered on a research question. Some projects surround a challenge with multiple partners. All projects yield new models and approaches for scaled transformation.
- ChangeWorks™: The scale of impact of any initiative is disproportionately influenced by the way it is conceived and structured. Businesses, government agencies, and foundations tackling a complex challenge (or the formation of a new initiative) can engage ChangeLabs to define, clarify, and establish its vision, cultural DNA, strategic direction, and implementation roadmap. ChangeLabs will design and facilitate one or more directed ChangeWorks™ events, apply our co-creation and facilitation expertise, and produce the vision, frameworks, and architecture needed for scaled impact.
ChangeLabs works with organizational leadership and strategy groups to incorporate deep transformation into an organization’s culture, leadership models, and strategic positioning. ChangeLabs transforms an organization’s capacity for scaled innovation and strategic decision-making in the face of rapidly changing organizational realities and global challenges. Engagements range from 3-24 months.
- ChangeLabs Inside: Many large organizations invest in R&D, but despite the potentially massive return on investment, few invest directly in innovation that transforms the behavior of their ecosystem. Our team helps leaders replicate the function and value of ChangeLabs and the System Acupuncture inside their own organization, government, or institution. Like an R&D department, ChangeLabs becomes an internal innovation lab that continually generates adaptive solutions and guides strategic decisions.

Trainings are customized to the needs and context of the partner organization.
