Collective Impact: Embracing Emergence
Wednesday, May 1, 2013
11:00 am - noon Pacific Standard Time 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm Eastern Standard Time
Register Here ($49)
Collective impact – when nonprofits, governments, businesses, and the public are brought together around a common agenda to focus on a specific social problem – has been enthusiastically embraced by organizations around the world. However, many participants in collective impact initiatives have become frustrated by the degree of complexity involved in tackling tough social problems. One of the greatest obstacles has been that practitioners have been expecting predetermined solutions. Predetermined solutions are better suited for discrete programs but rarely work under conditions of complexity. Collective impact works differently – the process and results are emergent rather than predetermined. It is an entirely new model of social progress. Please join us to explore how to address complexity in collective impact and create an intentional process that allows for effective solutions.
John Kania, coauthor of SSIR’s “Embracing Emergence: How Collective Impact Addresses Complexity,” will discuss this next phase in the collective impact dialogue and define “emergence,” a term that describes events that are unpredictable and which no one organization or individual can control. He will be joined by Blair Taylor, who will share from experience the implications of complexity and emergence in Memphis Fast Forward’s work, and Mark Cabaj of Tamarack, who will discuss developmental evaluation in collective impact. This lively discussion, moderated by SSIR Managing Editor Eric Nee, will focus on why collective impact is a relevant approach for complex problems and how leaders of successful collective impact initiatives have embraced a new way of collectively seeing, learning and doing that marries emergent solutions with intentional outcomes. The webinar will help participants understand the implications of complexity and emergence in their work and how developmental evaluation can advance collective learning to reach better and more robust outcomes.
We hope you’ll join us and tweet along using the hashtag #collectiveimpact.
