Organisations in the voluntary and community sector collaborate in many different ways, including:
The benefits of successful collaboration include greater efficiency and use of resources, improved services, a stronger voice and influence and organisational sustainability.
Successful collaborative working does require investment of time and resources. Good preparation and an understanding of the processes involved will, no doubt, bring about a greater chance of success.
Think carefully whether collaborative working is appropriate for your organisation. Be clear about your own goals and understand your strategic environment. This will help you in identifying and approaching your partners.
Work closely with your partners to develop your collaboration. Draw up shared aims, structures and agreements and develop positive relationships.
Manage the collaboration effectively with a strong action plan and communications plan. Prepare yourself for any possible frustrating times ahead by building in effective problem solving and understanding some of the key challenges that may arise.
Review and learn from your collaborative experience and use your learnings to prepare a forward strategy.
