Transforming Knowledge into Change

Collective Impact

Large-scale social change requires broad cross-sector coordination, yet the social sector remains focused on the isolated intervention of individual organizations.  

"Collective  Impact" by John Kania and Mark Kramer talks about how large-scale social change comes from better cross-sector coordination rather than from the isolated intervention of individual organizations. The article also talks about funding collective impact, and the 5 conditions of collective success: Common Agenda, Shared Measurement systems, Mutually Reinforcing Activities, Continuous Communication, and Backbone Support Organizations.
