Public Group Hub Tree: Collective Impact

The concept of Collective Impact gained visibility in a Winter 2011 article in the Stanford Social Innovation Review, and it clearly has resonated with a lot of people. Additional articles have since provided more details on the differences between practices that emphasize “Collective Impact” rather than the “Isolated Impact” of individual programs or organizations. Even the authors admit that we are still very early in a journey that should transform many aspects of the non-profit/social sector.

This group will focus on acclerating that learning and spreading the adoption of the practices that lead to Collective Impact. As much sense as it makes to work together, it is certainly not the norm. One purpose of this group will be to explore the main obstacles to Collective Impact and how to overcome them.
