What is it?
A capacity-building framework that identifies 10 elements of successful movements. Three examples of elements are: 1) having a common vision and frame, 2) having an authentic base of key constituencies, and 3) having a strategy to scale up. This framework may be used to map movement actors who contribute to each element; identify areas for greater collaboration, coordination, or differentiation; and reveal gaps in the movement that need to be addressed.
