Bill Drayton – Founder of Ashoka observed that, “We are living in a time of rapid change. We are moving from a world of silos and hierarchy to one of fluidity and many leaders. Only institutions that organize differently and individuals who develop different skills will be ready for the world that awaits them”.
Nations are encountering social, economic and environmental challenges that have become increasingly complex to an extend that no single sector has the capacity to tackle them.
To achieve collaborative value and collective impact:
- We have to embrace cross-sector coordination, rather than isolated impact or a solution implemented by an individual organization.
- Understand and accept that social issues relentlessly change and solutions must continuously adapt to the change.
- Change the way we work with one another by consciously interacting and learning from each other.
