    Abstract

    In this report, we have developed and illustrated how to facilitate the building of
    a shared understanding of systemic change among multiple stakeholders. We
    have used frames, tools and approaches from transition management,
    stakeholder engagement, knowledge management and foresight. The main
    approach is based on the multi-level perspective frame, which has been useful
    for structuring and illustrating the drivers, barriers and developments in a given
    topic. Moreover, we have emphasised the facilitator key role as an activator of
    reflection, integrator of niche and regime developments and an enabler of trust.
    The three case studies are based on VTT research projects on system-level
    change in social sector renewal, the mining sector and the energy sector.
