As it has continued to evolve and mature, the Collective Impact framework has become a proven approach for effective multi-sector collaboration resulting in tangible social change outcomes. This framework has become increasingly popular across the world, as more organizations commit to following the principles of the framework. Its growth has shown that there are many different phases of maturity for Collective Impact Initiatives.

With nearly 20 years of experience helping organizations navigate the Collective Impact framework, Tamarack has assisted collaboratives at all phases of maturity. Tamarack's upcoming Foundation of Collective Impact is specifically focused on collaboratives very early in maturity. If your Collective Impact Initiative has just begun, or are a more senior Collective Impact initiative looking to increase the capacity of other organizations within your collaborative, this online learning opportunity is for you. Stay tuned for details on the upcoming release of the Foundations of Collective Impact.
