Network Leadership From the Field
March 27 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
As collaboration across organizational boundaries is becoming more and more common, the need to explore how to “govern” or manage/facilitate/lead networks of partners continues to grow. The rise of the Collective Impact model guided many networks in strategies for utilizing a backbone organization as the primary governing entity and many resources have emerged for how to implement that structure. However, as that model has been implemented, people are curious about what other types of methods for governing networks might be possible, and are looking for alternatives to this top-down approach to network governance. Specifically, people are looking for governance models that will empower network members to engage in shared accountability, shared facilitation, and shared voice. In this webinar, Blythe Butler, one of today’s most influential thinkers on network governance, brings to life a conversation many of us are looking for, and sets the stage for digging deeper into this “big topic” of networks in today’s fast moving collaborative spaces.
