Surviving the Ups and Downs of Social Movements

Surviving the Ups and Downs of Social Movements | Curating change | Scoop.it

Those who get involved in social movements share a common experience: Sometimes, when an issue captures the public eye or an unexpected event triggers a wave of mass protest, there can be periods of intense activity, when new members rush to join the cause and movement energy swells. But these extraordinary times are often followed by long, fallow stretches when activists’ numbers dwindle and advocates struggle to draw any attention at all.

Jodi Brown's insight:

There's some really thought provoking and insightful content in here about the lifespan of a social movement, and how without a good understanding of the undulations and movement cycles, we are unable to challenge despondency. This is an introduction to Moyer's MAP model (Movement Action Plan) which describes eight stages through which social movements normally progress over a period of years and decades. For each state, MAP describes the role of the public, powerholders, and the movement:  https://www.indybay.org/olduploads/movement_action_plan.pdf

Jodi Brown's insight:
I'm doing some work on Theories of Change for mobilising improvement. Before starting this job @NHSIQ it was something I'd never really heard of, or taken much notice of. I'm interested in the differences between intentions for having a ToC and how it is received/perceived by those who operate without knowing their ToC.

Innovation:  Careful planning, keen insight, and an embrace of the uncertain. | Curating change | Scoop.it

Via W. Bradley Gooderham
Jodi Brown's insight:

This is a great visualisation of the principles that foster innovation in organisations. I like "encourage unproven ideas" which is essentially the flip-side of a risk-averse culture. Allowing individuals to try out new ideas in safe and supportive environments builds self-efficacy, autonomy and confidence. It goes further than that though, as we need to nurture resilience and problem-solving capability against fear when ideas don't work out. We need to be able to say, "What have we learned" rather than, "It didn't work".

Jodi Brown's insight:

This is a powerful read & a seldom example of exploration of the emotions that motivated and spurred activist participation in the historical Montgomery Bus Boycott of 1955. Drawing parallels between this and the social movements in seen in health and care organisations is particularly interesting to me. The notion of an emotional dichotomy driving activist behaviour (Jasper, 2011) is an important one: negative feelings about repression, humiliation, rejection, injustice must be accompanied by positive emotions of solidarity, courage, determination, self-pride and purpose in order that they are motivated to join forces with a Social Movement Organisation (SMO).

This guide has struck me on two levels. Firstly, it is a fantastic mental health resource with a refreshing approach to wellbeing. I gained a lot from reading it- both personally and professionally. I also reflected over the concept over radical burnout & whether we should so more to help those who are at risk. By their very nature, radicals are fast-paced, high impact, ambitious and determined. How can we help them look after their own emotional wellbeing so that they develop/maintain a sense of psychological resilience?

To Make Crowdsourcing Work, Move From Contests To Continual Innovation

To Make Crowdsourcing Work, Move From Contests To Continual Innovation | Curating change | Scoop.it

Crowdsourcing is all the rage. The Internet is rife with breathless coverage of companies inviting the public to submit videos, create new food flavors or submit product ideas to company and open platforms. Much of the coverage ranges from hype to downright hysteria. 

Jodi Brown's insight:

Some great pearls of wisdom in here about crowdsourcing success and sutainability. Of course, continual innovation is the holy grail but having been invovled in an open and continual innovation initiative, I know how much work needs to go into the process to ensure it is responsive and doesn't just turn into an expensive digital suggestion box. Good lessons to be learned from this article in healthcare innovation and crowdsourcing.
