A major challenge facing organizations today is how to partner with other organizations, agencies, and groups to collaboratively address social and political goals while effectively maximizing resource sharing of the partners involved. However, the process by which organizations have engaged partners in collaboration has varied, with few ways to measure and evaluate the success of these partnerships. Network leaders are eager to understand how to evaluate the collaboratives in which they are involved so that they may determine whether efforts to focus resources on partnership or collaborative development are working. Join this webinar to learn about using PARTNER for Quality Improvement, a great resource to measure where you are now, where you want to be, and gives you the data to make evidence based decisions as you develop action steps to implement change within your network.
