I was commissioned by the Scottish Government to develop a guide for community groups based on the ISM model. The guide – Shifting Normal – was launched at the CCF Gathering in June 2105, where I ran two workshops introducing the Four Questions, Four Zones framework.

Feedback was extremely positive and many people took away multiple copies to use with their groups. The guide and accompanying material is available here.

I have since introduced the framework in a number of workshops and people tell me they found it intuitive and practical. While the guide refers to community climate action projects, the framework is equally applicable in other contexts, for example within organisations, and to address other aspects of sustainability or social change.
