Introduction and Purpose
This collaboration decision support tool has been designed as a resource to aid organisations considering entering into or forming collaborations to:
(a) help to determine if collaboration is the most appropriate model,
(b) assess current capacity and capability to undertake collaborative action, and
(c) offer strategies and resources with which to go forward. It is informed by a strong evidence base drawn from research and practice.
Using the decision support tool will help participating organisations to:
- develop a clearer understanding of the range of purposes of collaborations
- reflect on the partnerships they have established
- focus on ways to strengthen new and existing partnerships by engaging in discussion about issues and ways forward.
You can browse the tool using the links below. Ideally, you should take the time to read the guide, and then progress through the questionnaires in the order they are given. You can do this alone, however it is best completed as a combined exercise by both organisations that are considering working together.
In order to view and record your answers to the questions in the questionnaries you will need to log in and then register for this course. Log in or create a free account on the login page and then register for this course on the registration page.
