Hertfordshire Compact Forum - Partnership

41 views

Published on

How we work in partnership is often different from how we work in a single organisation.
Our organisational culture and language can help or hinder collaboration.
A new partnership often needs new types of working models with shared responsibility, shared risks, shared communication, new systems of decision making.

At the heart of a successful partnership is a set of shared values and, importantly, the ability to build and develop relationships The Herts Compact Forum discussed what good partnership meant to them, and what values we wanted to have in Hertfordshire.
The forum groups chose their top 3 values and also the 3 obstacles that could get in the way.
