Description

Market disruptions, climate change, and health pandemics lead the growing list of challenges faced by today’s leaders.

These issues, along with countless others that do not make the daily news, require novel thinking and collaborative action to find workable solutions.

However, many administrators stumble into collaboration without a strategic orientation.

Using a practitioner-oriented style, Strategic Collaboration in Public and Nonprofit Administration: A Practice-Based Approach to Solving Shared Problems provides guidance on how to collaborate more effectively, with less frustration and better results.

The authors articulate an approach that takes advantage of windows of opportunity for real problem solving; brings multi-disciplinary participants to the table to engage more systematically in planning, analysis, decision making, and implementation; breaks down barriers to change; and ultimately, lays the foundation for new thinking and acting.

They incorporate knowledge gained from organization and collaboration management research and personal experience to create a fresh approach to collaboration practice that highlights: Collaboration Lifecycle ModelMetric for determining why and when to collaborateSet of principles that distinguish Strategic Collaboration PracticeOverall Framework of Strategic CollaborationLinking collaboration theory to effective practice, this book offers essential advice that fosters shared understanding, creative answers, and transformation results through strategic collaborative action.
