Lincoln, Nebraska – At any given moment, in communities across the globe, people from different sectors are working together to respond to complex social problems. Some groups are better able to do this than others. The Juvenile Justice Institute (JJI) has been testing a tool to help measure why some collaborations are more successful than others.
Successful collaborations seem to tap into the group's potential using a specific formula. This creates a certain synergy within the group. In 2011, Kania and Kramer provided a framework that outlined "the five conditions for collective success," which brought to life the notion of Collective Impact. While successful collaborations had surely tapped into these elements before, Kania and Kramer (2011) outlined them in a way that succinctly captured the critical elements of success and the movement caught fire.
JJI just released a white paper describing our efforts to measure the framework of successful collaborative groups. Read the white paper here.
