Collective Impact, Tools

Community change efforts often involve addressing complex issues with multiple root causes. The paradox of this work is that leaders must simultaneously hold a comprehensive understanding of their issue AND also scope for their work so that it is actionable and achievable. This tool invites you to think about the work of clarifying, and reaching agreement on, the scope and span of your community change initiative.

The Tamarack Institute is a connected force for community change. We work with leaders in non-profits, governments, businesses and the community to make work of advancing positive community change easier and more effective. We do this by teaching and writing about collective impact, community engagement, collaborative leadership, community development, and evaluating community impact. We host two learning communities Cities Reducing Poverty and Cities Deepening Community turning theory into action.
