Please join us on September 19 to preview four tools designed to help Community-Based Organizations (CBO) accelerate cross-sector partnership development efforts. As part of a learning collaborative established by the Aging and Disability Institute (ADBI) to develop multiple approaches that will advance integration between CBOs and healthcare organizations, four tools were developed. Collaborative Consulting and a team of CBO leaders with a range of experience in pursuing and launching cross-sector partnerships designed the tools. The initial set of tools will guide CBOs through processes such as conducting a market assessment, analyzing the competition, vetting opportunities and building a rationale for partnership.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • List four CBO cross-sector partnership development tools that will soon be available on the ADBI website;
  • List details of the design process that was used to develop and test the tools;
  • Describe how to navigate the process of using the tools; and,
  • Describe how ongoing utilization with structured frameworks and practices provided via the tools can enhance and accelerate your partnership development efforts.

She understood that the challenge facing health- and social-care organizations would be reinvention, not preservation of the status quo. Her current project focus is on the design and implementation of cross-sector partnerships, community-based care networks, capacity building programs, and leadership redesign initiatives.
