Leading Across Boundaries: Creating Collaborative Agencies in a Networked World

The seven key collaborative factors

  • The partners have a shared, specific interest or purpose that they are committed to and can't achieve (as well) on their own.
  • The partners want to pursue a collaborative solution now and are willing to contribute something to the effort.
  • The appropriate people are at the table.
  • The partners have an open, credible process.
  • The effort has a passionate champion, with credibility and clout.
  • The partners have trusting relationships.
  • The partners use the skills of collaborative leadership.

Credibility = Character + Competence
