Collective Impact versus Collaboration: Sides of the Same Coin OR Different Phenomenon?
Prange, Kelly; Allen, Joseph A.; Reiter-Palmon, Roni
Metropolitan Universities, v27 n1 p86-96 2016
Collective impact is a recently developed concept and approach to solving social problems that rectifies many of the issues associated with isolated impact. We compared collective impact and the formal definition of collaboration and made integrations between the two concepts. Specifically, we explored effective assessment and facilitation methods and applied them to collective impact initiatives in order to facilitate more purposeful implementation of collective impact. We concluded that collective impact is a specific form of collaboration.
