1 The Power of Collaboration Models of Collective Impact MBS Symposium #2 24 October 2012

2 Harnessing the multiplier effect … through constructive collaboration, dialogue and exchange Constructive collaboration, dialogue and exchange has a multiplier effect. It can help disseminate good ideas and practices and drive innovation as organisations bring together their different perspectives, experiences, networks, knowledge and expertise. In doing that it can act as a mechanism for systemic change. The Trust Company is keen to help the organisations that it supports to harness that multiplier effect by: Helping them to clearly articulate their ‘theory of change’ and models of collaboration Supporting collaboration, dialogue and exchange between organisations within its funding portfolio and Helping funded organisations to engage with other organisations and stakeholders outside of that group. The purpose of this session is to: Explore the models or ‘theories of change’ that are being applied across the group and Understand the role that collaboration currently plays in those models. 2

3 Proposed approach Discuss the different models or ‘theories of change’ that are being used across the group to help improve the delivery of educational outcomes. In doing that we will look at what is the same and what is different in terms of: What you are each doing The ‘change levers’ that you are looking to pull The outcomes that you are trying to achieve and The sorts of things that you need to measure to assess how you are going. Review some basic principles about the different forms that collaboration can take and what makes it work. Have a discussion about the ways that the group is already involved in (or could harness) collaborative activity to increase its collective impact. 3

14 Discussion point Where do each of your organisations ‘sit’ on the spectrum? What sorts of collaborative activity are you involved in? What types of outcomes are you trying to achieve? What questions do you need to be asking to work out if you are achieving those outcomes? 14

15 Alignment – Common or at least complementary interest in the underlying objective and the activity being undertaken Resourcing – Adequate resourcing to support coordination and delivery of activity (so that there is both alignment of objectives and capacity to deliver against objectives) Role Clarity – Clear definition of roles and responsibilities Commitment – Clear commitment to roles and responsibilities Accountability – Clear accountability framework (process controls) to manage delivery against commitments Understanding – Understanding of individual organisation objectives and attributes and the impact that they have on the way that they will engage in the collaboration Key Success Factors Coordination – Clear coordination framework and ‘rules of engagement’ that define how the collaboration will operate Communication – Clear, open communication practices 15 Collaborations work best where they are based around strong common (or at least complementary) interests and objectives
