Argumentation While ToCs are typically formulated at the start of a project, changing team compositions and advances in implementation can lead to diverging ideas among project members about how change happens in the project context.

This process can strengthen teams by consolidating a collectively created perspective and clarifying the different roles and activities of project members. For this reason, several of the projects reviewed invested considerable resources in joint ToC reviews. They were found to enable SHARED UNDERSTANDING among diverse and geographically distributed team members.
