Advancing the Art of Collaboration
Coming soon: “Survival of the fittest” is out. “Survival of the connected” is in. Cloud storage, telecommuting, mobile access, data analysis, machine learning—we’re living in a transformational era where societal change fueled by digitization and automation is altering how we work and live like never before. The social impact and nonprofit space of course is not immune to these changes, and organizations of all sizes are now seeking out collaborations across geographies and in real time, with the aim of finding more partners with complementary assets to execute a shared vision.
This series—produced in partnership with BBB Give.org and featuring insights from nonprofit, foundation, and other leaders—calls on the social sector to embody a new and pioneering collaborative spirit based in trust so that it can reach broader audiences, share the risk involved in experimentation, and accomplish more than any single organization could do alone.
Whether improving teamwork between internal staff or working together with external partners, today’s newfound fluidity of operations presents many opportunities for social good organizations to better meet the needs of those they serve.
