Collaboration: What Works and Why

It could be argued that collaboration is the quintessential characteristic of the nonprofit sector. Many of our webinars over the past three years have addressed collaboration in one form or another: we’ve offered multiple perspectives on governance, employee relations, volunteering, planning and development as internal collaboration, as well as discussions of collaboration among nonprofits, and between nonprofits and the public and private sectors. In this webinar a panel of consultants will look at the mechanisms of and impediments to various forms of collaboration between organizations and the resources available to pursue collaboration more effectively. To make the webinar more responsive to the interests of the participants we will ask for questions and comments both before the webinar (we will contact registrants a few days before the webinar) and during it.

Takeaways:

  • How to evaluate different forms of inter-organization collaboration
  • What approaches and behaviors facilitate success in collaboration
  • How to decrease the risk of failure
