Core Components and Core Values

Systems mapping is a collaborative process that produces data-driven systems change using a public health model. Our core values and the core components of our approach ensure that our work is equitable and transformational. They ground us in how we approach our work, the work that we take on, and how we interact with each other.

Core Components

The three core components of the Systems Mapping Center’s approach help to produce transformative systems change across each of its service offerings.

  • Collaboration: Mappings are completed with multiple agencies and stakeholders, including individuals who have lived experience in the systems. Participants work together to identify gaps and resources and strategize the next steps.
  • Data-driven approach: The Systems Mapping Center uses local, state, and national statistics to inform the development of your local, data-driven report and action plan. We work with your community to develop benchmarks for success to demonstrate progress and outcomes.
  • Systems change: The Systems Mapping Center develops products, such as maps, reports, and strategic action plans, that assist with creating meaningful systems change. All products put together by the Systems Mapping Center are designed to be living documents. This allows jurisdictions to continuously update their maps and strategic action plans as things change. When priorities are achieved or revised, new services are launched, and service systems’ issues are improved or resolved, the products can reshape around the new landscape.
