PUBLICATION | How to Develop a Common Agenda for a Collective Impact: A 5 Step Guide is a paper written by Paul Born that provides a 'how-to' approach to developing a common agenda when working on a Collective Impact initiative. It is not meant to be prescriptive, but to provide a real life example of how this process has taken shape within Paul's experiences, and can act as a reference to fine-tune your own methodology.

Interested in diving deeper into these ideas? Join us at the upcoming Community Change Institute where you can meet Paul in person. Learn more.
