For complex issues like homelessness, poverty, environmental sustainability and economic development, simple, single-sourced solutions are not working. We need to explore new approaches. Collective Impact provides a framework for community leaders to tackle these complex problems. Collective Impact seems simple in design with five core conditions:

  • Building a common agenda;
  • Developing shared measurement;
  • Engaging in mutually reinforcing activities;
  • Focusing on continuous communications; and
  • Being supported by a backbone infrastructure.

The execution of successful collective impact initiatives requires the engagement of catalytic, systems leaders who focus on the health of the whole community, understand the complexity of the issue and use data to measure and drive results. In this session, Liz Weaver will present her five good ideas to get you started.
