Leaders and members of collective impact initiatives face multidimensional challenges: facilitating partners across sectors, driving data-informed decision-making, and authentically engaging with the community at large. These challenges are particularly acute for those who have extensive experience in program-driven and direct service nonprofit organizations, and are now working in collective impact partnerships to solve complex social challenges with diverse root causes. In many cases, those that are involved in collective impact partnerships are still addressing and leading direct service organizations – further complicating how best to engage productively and toward defined results.
This program combines the expertise of collective impact practitioners and funders in several fields, with leading Kellogg faculty in management, leadership and collaboration to provide directors, managers and senior executives with the skills and tools they need to lead and maximize the value collective impact partnerships. In a supportive, interactive learning environment, this two -day program examines in depth the key aspects of collective impact, including developing shared outcomes, community engagement, facilitation, continuous improvement and data-driven decision-making. To the degree possible, we encourage participants to attend with colleagues from their local partnerships so that key lessons and insights can be amplified locally.
