How to build your case for change

There are four key steps to putting together the case for your new idea. This could really apply to any kinds of ideas, but it’s especially meant to give you a framework to help you advocate for change, whether to workflow, culture or something else.

Step One: Gather your evidence.

Step Two: Build your team.

Step Three: Tell your data story

Step Four: Don’t bury the lede

This resource is part of the OpenNews After Party toolkit, developed by Emma Carew Grovum. It’s meant to help you get the most out of SRCCON—or any journalism event—and share what you learn with your own organization. The toolkit is licensed CC BY-SA 4.0, and we’d love to see you use or adapt it for your own event—all we need is a link back here.

We’d also be thrilled to hear how you put what you learn into practice, so please tweet us at #OpenNewsAfterParty, or if you have any questions, let us know!
