TOOL | Compendium of Collective Impact Resources Part Six: Engaging Stakeholders to Build Movements for Change

Collective Impact, Tools

Collective Impact is a framework for addressing complex community dilemmas and is most effective when trying to move the needle at a population or systems change scale.  It is not a useful framework when the purpose of the collaborative effort is solely to deliver programmatic services or solutions.  Community and stakeholder engagement is essential to the success of your Collective Impact initiative and ensures that the approaches you are taking to solving community issues are informed by local wisdom.

In this edition of the series, we have curated a list of papers, tools and resources which focus on the practice of effective community engagement, and how a movement building lens can accelerate the impact of your collaborative initiative.
