Partnerships and collective impact initiatives are multiplying in Canada, as cross-sectorial collaborators come together to positively advance impact on complex social issues. Partnerships offer the potential for outcomes bigger than any one organization could achieve on their own. Done well, such collaborations enable innovation, create greater value and strengthen commitments from a broader range of people, perspectives and organizations. But success is not always guaranteed. Like anything that delivers great results, collaboration takes hard work, flexibility AND courage. The people involved in making partnerships happen are key to partnering success. How do they build knowledge and skills and possess the tools and insights to deliver positive partnering results?
