CoP Working Paper #2 Identifies the Relationship between Scaling and Systems
A recent Working Paper for the Scaling Community of Practice (COP) identified a number of crosscutting issues whose further exploration would benefit the entire COP membership. One of these was the relationship between Scaling and Systems. There has been a vigorous debate in the scaling community on the extent to which systems need to be taken into account in scaling efforts, or even if the starting point for change efforts should be systems change rather than scaling innovations. Accordingly, the COP decided to organize a Webinar to explore the relationship between systems and scaling. This note serves to provide background for that Webinar, to frame the issues and identify questions for discussion.

CoP Working Paper #1 Highlights Cutting-Edge Issues in Scaling
The Scaling Up Community of Practice (CoP) held its 5th Annual Workshop on 19-30 October 2020. Three virtual plenary sessions and nine virtual working group (WG) sessions covered a wide range of scaling aspects. Recordings of these sessions are available on the CoP’s website (www.scalingcommunityofpractice.com) and are summarized in the CoP’s Newsletter #19 which can be downloaded from the website.
Following the Workshop, the CoP commissioned Richard Kohl to review all of the materials from the Workshop and to prepare a paper identifying and exploring the major cross-cutting issues that emerged from the discussions. This paper, CoP Working Paper #1, is intended to shape the deliberations and additional knowledge products by the CoP and its 9 Working Groups during 2021. It is also intended as a contribution to deeper exploration within the development community about strategies for achieving sustainable outcomes at scale.

Last year, we started a collaboration with @CRS, we learned a lot with them about #systemschange. Here some of our learnings https://nextbillion.net/systems-change-scaling-innovations-development-challenges/ #scaling4SD #scalingCoP @CIMMYT @ScalingUpCoP
We were pleased to work alongside our partners @VVOBvzw @BrookingsGlobal @EducateOrg @STIReducation @Pratham_India on the development of the Education Scalability Checklist below. Check it out here: http://bit.ly/ESC-resources #scalingup #ScalingCOP
Locally effective education innovations already exist. The challenge is that of scaling them 🆙 to different contexts.
Our Education Scalability Checklist is a (free) dynamic diagnostic tool to help identify ways to increase the likelihood of scaling.
