Leading a Network Isn't Easy.
A Data-Driven Strategy can Help.

More than ever, organizations from all sectors are building networks to help improve societal outcomes. In public health, education, early childhood systems and more, collaboration is seen as key to solving wicked problems. However building and maintaining networks takes time, and it isn’t easy to prove all that effort is making a difference. Our new online course will focus on providing you the skill, knowledge and tools you need to collect data and leverage network science to build a network strategy. Armed with this training, you’ll be ready to start building a more strategic network and improving outcomes!

What Will This Course Cover?

We can all think of and imagine the immense diversity of networks that are forming all across our country.  We know that networks are born out of the needs of their communities, especially during these complex times of change and transition within the health care environment.  But we want to know more about how-to strategically build robust networks, identify options for governance, and how-to measure and evaluate the effectiveness of networks.  

In this online course, you will learn about basic network science, walk through the steps to build a data-driven network strategy, and how to collect and track you networks to visualize and assess how well your networks are meeting key strategies. Attendees will map the current state of their networks and then map the ideal state of their networks.  This exercise creates an opportunity for network leaders to begin to conceptualize data-driven network strategies. 

In addition, you will learn how to use the PARTNER Platform to identify the right measures to track your networks, open up a data tracking and learning tool, and analyze the results to improve strategies and reach outcomes.

The result of completing this course opens the door for figuring out how to be strategic in managing networks and how to measure and evaluation the strength and vitality of their network. 


Finally, you will connect to a network of other network leaders, evaluators, funders, and members who – like you – are looking for better ways to know if their networks are reaching the outcomes intended.
