Collaboration is now used to the point it can become meaningless when it is in fact simple. It is the action of working together to achieve a shared goal more efficiently. This can mean collaborating internally or externally to deliver a service, a programme, or a policy more effectively.
Selecting the right approach to effective collaboration is essential to reap the benefits stemming from it. Through this highly interactive course, choose to collaborate strategically and learn the tools useful to implementing it.
Through a range of examples and discussions, this course highlights different collaboration levels, and the management and leadership skills necessary to foster both internal and external collaboration in your organisation. Learn how to identify key stakeholders, manage your relationship with them, act on your decisions, and proactively respond to potential challenges in collaborative relationships in your organisation.
