  3. 3. What is Collective Impact?
  4. 4. How did this idea begin? 2011 Stanford Social Innovation Review introduced the concept of Collective Impact, as an effective form of cross-sector collaboration to address complex social and environmental challenges Collect Impact Principles of Practice  Design and implement the initiative with a priority placed on equity  Include community members in collaborative  Recruit and co-create with cross-sector partners  Use data to continuously learn, adapt, and improve  Cultivate leaders with unique system leadership skills  Focus on program and system strategies  Build a culture that fosters relationships, trust, and respect across participants  Customize for local context
  5. 5. 5 Conditions of Collective Impact Forward Wayne County is a collective impact backbone organization. Backbone organizations are responsible for:  Guiding vision and strategy  Supporting aligned activities  Establishing shared measurement practices  Building public will  Advancing policy  Mobilizing resources
  6. 6. Guide Vision and Strategy • Partners accurately describe the common agenda • Partners publicly discuss/ advocate for common agenda goals • Partners’ individual work in increasingly aligned with common agenda • Board members and key leaders increasing look to backbone organization for initiative support, strategic guidance and leadership Support Aligned Activities • Partners articulate their role in the initiative • Relevant stakeholders are engaged in the initiative • Partners communicate and coordinate efforts regularly, with, and independently of, backbone • Partners report increasing levels of trust with one another • Partners increase scope/ type of collaborative work • Partners improve quality of their work • Partners improve efficiency of their work • Partners feel supported and recognized in their work Establish Shared Measurement Practices • Shared data system is in development • Partners understand the value of shared data • Partners have robust / shared data capacity • Partners make decisions based on data • Partners utilize data in meaningful way Build Public Will • Community members are increasingly aware of the issues • Community members express support for the initiative • Community members feel empowered to engage in the issue(s) • Community members increasingly take action Advance Policy • Target audience (e.g. influencers and policymakers) is increasingly aware of initiative • Target audiences advocate for changes to the system aligned with initiative goals • Public policy is increasingly aligned with initiative goals Mobilize Resources • Funders are asking for nonprofits to align to initiative goals • Funders are redirecting funds to support initiative goals • New resources from public and private sources are being contributed to partners and initiative What Makes a Backbone Organization Effective?
  7. 7. Collaboration & Competition The difficulty of bringing together people who have never collaborated before and organizations often compete with each other for funding and could believe CI will result in loss of funding Shared Metrics Gaining alignment on what can be measured, how it’s measured and why it’s measured can be challenge for the organizations Wrong Solutions Predetermined solutions rarely work under conditions of complexity Challenges with Collective Impact

Editor's Notes

  • Lets get a quick overview of what collective impact is and why we want to build collective impact coalitions in the future along with supporting backbone organizations like Forward Wayne County.
  • 2011 Stanford Social Innovation Review introduced the concept, collective impact has been widely adopted as an effective form of cross-sector collaboration to address complex social and environmental challenges. Though collective impact has proven to be a powerful approach in tackling a wide range of issues in communities all over the world, many practitioners are searching for the tools they need to be successful in this work.

  • There are 5 components or conditions to collective impact.
  • Collective impact poses many challenges, of course: the difficulty of bringing together people who have never collaborated before, the competition and mistrust among funders and grantees, the struggle of agreeing on shared metrics and of course politics.

    However, one of the greatest challenges are often the wrong kind of solutions. The solutions, in the social sector often involve discrete programs that address a social problem through a carefully worked out theory of change, relying on incremental resources from funders, and ideally supported by an evaluation that attributes to the program the impact achieved. Once proven, these solutions can scale up by spreading to other organizations.

    The problem is that such predetermined solutions rarely work under conditions of complexity—conditions that apply to most major social problems—when the unpredictable interactions of multiple players determine the outcomes. And even when successful interventions are found, adoption spreads very gradually, if it spreads at all.
  • Collective impact works differently. The process and results of collective impact are emergent rather than predetermined, the necessary resources and innovations often already exist but have not yet been recognized, learning is continuous, and adoption happens simultaneously among many different organizations.

    In other words, collective impact is not merely a new process that supports the same social sector solutions but an entirely different model of social progress. The power of collective impact lies in the heightened vigilance that comes from multiple organizations looking for resources and innovations through the same lens, the rapid learning that comes from continuous feedback loops, and the immediacy of action that comes from a unified and simultaneous response among all participants.

    When supported by an effective backbone and shared measurement system, the cascading levels of collaboration creates a high degree of transparency among all organizations and levels involved in the work. As the illustration suggests, information flows both from the top down and from the bottom up. Vision and oversight are centralized through a steering committee, but also decentralized through multiple working groups that focus on different levers for change.
  • Two main purposes:
    Strengthen collaboration between community partners –public, private, non profit, religious, government, etc. in order to build a strong network to support the efforts of becoming closer to a drug free community.
    Target youth and underage substance abuse by creating and maintaining a youth coalition that will be the future leaders of tomorrow to decrease the number of youth and adults who are using substances.
  • To increase local community participation in efforts to reduce substance use among youth aged 12-17, the DFC Program requires funded coalitions to include active participation from the 12 community sectors
  • NCA and week 3. FWC attending week 3 in order to tie in health and wellness portion of their goals.
