We think collaboration is the coming together of many different groups with a common purpose and developing a way of working. It is sometimes difficult, and can challenge how we usually behave and think about ‘how we get things done’.
We developed a model with The King’s Fund and several other organisations that takes you through what you need to consider when you’re working through a collaborative change.
Tools and theories of collaboration
In our learning, we’ve come across several different tools and theories that other people may find useful when trying to collaborate successfully.
Collaborative Service Change Network
We set up the Collaborative Service Change Network as a space to meet and talk through collaboration.
