Through our project work and research, Foresight has been studying and practicing the mechanics of cross-sector collaboration for years now. Collaboration is by no means a novel concept, but working together on complex challenges requires brand new approaches, structures, and measures of success. Now is the time to ask, what does transformational collaboration even mean?
In lieu of a written definition of transformational collaboration, I thought I would share a conceptual matrix that Foresight has put together to inform our own understanding of collaboratives. This is very much a work in progress, and we sincerely welcome your thoughts and questions to advance the conversation.
