Supporting Processes & Roles

Supporting Processes and Roles

As the desired degree of collaboration moves along the Inter-organization Collaboration Continuum, it highlights the need for increasing attention to, and sophistication of the methods used to manage project tasks as well as to build relationships and group cohesion, with the underlying development of working trust.

Using each step to both engage in the task and use processes that help participants to learn more about each other and deepen their common understanding of the collective terrain, helps to build collaborative services and programs that are sufficiently robust, and adaptive.

The Complex Collaboration Model includes six process and role aspects – each is described briefly so that collaborations can have a sense of which capabilities are important for representatives and for external supports.
