Welcome to Dialectiq

An interactive relational mapping platform that guides people through the complex process of creating positive systemic change.

Translating analysis into insight

We believe creating positive systemic change requires enhancing and clarifying our understanding of complexities.

Yet, despite the increasing availability of data and reports, translating analysis into actionable insights that improves our ability to understand how systemic change is possible remains a challenge.

At Dialectiq our aim is to improve people's ability to interact with and navigate these complex processes.

We are changing the way people think about and understand systemic change by putting relationships at the centre of the transformation process.

By examining the interactions between people, incentives and beliefs we identify systemic patterns of behaviours and the structures that drive them.

It is through understanding the nature of these relationships where we can discover spaces for change.

How Dialectiq works

What can Dialectiq do?

By connecting different types of knowledge we make analysis more accessible, dynamic, relevant and meaningful

Map complex systems and their networks

Dialectiq maps how different causal factors are interlinked and the relationships driving these behaviours.


This means users can take a more holistic view of the problem and consider their intervention from different perspectives.

Provide a direction for moving forward

Through understanding the nature of interactions, users can break down key relationships into discrete problems, risks or opportunities.

This provides a practical direction for moving forward and pinpointing entry points where change agents can transform behaviours with a relatively high likelihood of success.

Embark on an interactive learning journey

For solutions to emerge from complex problems requires a dynamic tool that facilitates continual learning and iteration.


Dialectiq enables users to embark on a collective journey of adapting strategies as the context evolves, or as the (inevitable) unintended consequences of the interventions take hold.


This ability to continually update their understanding helps users work in an emergent and experimental manner.

Who we support

The platform supports national and international stakeholders, such as governments, development banks, NGOs, academic institutions, and all actors involved in positive systemic change
