  1. The role of partnerships in delivering social change

    17th June, 2015

    Increasingly not-for-profits, government, communities and business are jointly developing and implementing initiatives that address a broad range of socially intractable problems across the community. These initiatives are often systemic and aim to address the root causes of complex issues. They operate within adaptive and dynamic environments and are therefore not well suited to linear approaches to change. Comprehensively tackling intractable problems brings together multiple and diverse actors, often with overlapping boundaries. Increasingly these programs are being delivered through new forms of partnership and collaboration, and there is increasing interest in learning how to best broker, build and assess the strength of these relationships.
