Creating Conditions for Successful Collaboration.
Intriligator, Barbara A.
An Inter-Organizational Relationship (IOR) may be used by colleges of education to establish formal arrangements for collaboration with local school systems. This arrangement is designed to allow the member organizations to sponsor joint programs and activities and share decision making to accomplish functions and goals determined jointly by the members. In planning for an IOR, several methods may be used in assessing external and internal resources and in exploring the cooperative environment of the member organizations. Following the planning stage of the IOR, the second phase of the model deals with analyzing the characteristics of the IOR structure and the relationships of member organizations, the types of coordinating mechanisms available to each, and the amount and kind of resources which may be provided by or for each. Interaction processes between the IOR members are also analyzed in this phase. In the final phase of the model, consideration is given to the outcomes of planning for the IOR, and to the operation of IOR functions and activities. (JD)
