Delivering outcomes by working collectively  

Applying the Collective Impact Model    

The complexity of many problems in our society – whether social, economic or environmental - cannot be solved by standalone organisations or initiatives.  A collective approach recognises these complexities and brings the diverse players who can impact the problem together to build a common agenda to tackle the issue. 

We have developed this two day practicum to understand and apply tools that will work in the collaboration space. You will explore the personal skills needed for collective working and apply your learning to a current project/issue.
